Almond Butter Coconut Cinnamon Choco-Nana

Almond Butter Coconut Cinnamon Choco-Nana


What immediately came to mind when I took my first bite was “you touch my banana and I will cut you”.  I felt like a kid at a carnival eating this thing because it’s so gooey chocolaty decadent, no one has to know it’s paleo, vegan, gluten-free, dairy free or healthy.

I made a little tinfoil boat for my banana to sit in while in the oven so it didn’t tip over and spill all the friggin yumminess out all over the place.

If you have a sweet tooth and I know you do (don’t lie), you need this banana concoction in your life and more importantly, in your mouth. I cannot wait to get home from yoga tonight and devour one of these. I have 2 bananas left and if hubby plays his cards right, I might make him one because I’m certainly not going to share 🙂
