Skinny Candied Banana with PB and Chocolate Chips

I'm always dreaming of dessert... particularly dessert I can eat without a million calories. So the other day I decided to see what this candied banana business was all about. I embellished a little of course and added PB2 and chocolate chips for good measure.

I can't even tell you how good this was. It far exceeded my expectations.

The chips and PB2 get all melty... the combination of banana, PB2 and chocolate is the best.

Better yet? This entire thing was only 275 calories! But it tastes like a decadent 500 calorie dessert, trust me.

Skinny Candied Banana with PB2 and Chocolate Chips

1 small or medium banana
1 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp coconut sugar
1 Tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp chocolate chips
2 Tbsp PB2 (plus water for making the PB)

Prepare your PB2 according to directions on jar. Heat skillet over medium high heat and melt butter. Slice banana in half lengthwise. Once butter has melted, add in the Tbsp of coconut sugar and stir to combine. Add banana halves and sprinkle with cinnamon. Saute for 1-2 minutes per side until banana starts to become tender and caramelize on the outside.

Remove from heat and plate. Drizzle PB2 over the hot banana. Sprinkle with chocolate chips. Devour.
