The tasty snack rockin' my Health Nutty socks!

Yes, I have a sweet tooth. I love chocolate, and I love bananas. I gave up sugary boxed cereal long ago, and needed a breakfast to look forward to in the morning again.

I've always been a fan of bananas with milk, and so this began.

A banana, maple syrup, cacao nibs, and some unsweetened almond milk...made this into a breakfast I wanted to eat over and over again. It's great for those that are gluten free and dairy free too!

This recipe is easy, filling, quick.. a great energy boost, and fills that void of missing cereal. The cacao nibs add a nice crunch, too.

Made from the raw cacao bean (pronounced CA-COW),  "nature's pure chocolate chips" are high in fibre, magnesium, iron, antioxidants, and omega 3 fatty acids ( Different from cocoa, they are the purest form of chocolate you can eat. Cacao nibs have a pure, but delicious chocately flavour, and can actually be mood-boosting! You can use them in baking, and even buy it in a powder for using in smoothies.

Why wouldn't you want this in the morning..or afternoon...or evening?! Grab 'em at your local health food store, Zehrs, or amazon.

What are ya waiting for? Get on it!
