Mexi-Nanner Banana Sandwich


Mexi-Nanner Banana Sandwich :: BeckyCharms.com

Bananas are my fuel; in the morning, before a workout, and after my sweat sesh.

They give me a power up like none other.  I take them every where, and if I run out, I stop by the grocery store or farmer's market, if applicable, to grab a bunch.

But sometimes I want something more.  {Don't we all?}

I was in the car starving, but waited to get home before peeling back, when I thought about making a sandwich.  I eat a lot of those.  They're quick, easy, and extremely customizable.

Usually, I add peanut or almond butter, jam, and a banana.

Today I was feeling daring.  I was thinking of how to add some spice and zing to my regular, old, monkey fuel.

How..how..BINGO!

After tasting a little chili powder, I decided that had nice flavor.  What could I use to complement the chili powder?

Cinnamon!  Now we have chili powder and cinnamon, but I also love chocolate.

How can I add chocolate flavor without adding tons of fat and calories?

Unsweetened cocoa powder!

So here's what we have:

Mexi-Nanner Banana Sandwich 
Serves 1

  • 2 slices Alpine Valley Multi-Grain w/Omega-3 Bread {or bread of choice}, toasted
  • Almond butter {I used 2 teaspoons}
  • 1 Banana
  • Chili powder
  • Cinnamon
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
Toast bread. Spread almond butter on both sides, evenly.  At this point can either sprinkle spices and cocoa on both sides of the bread, one side of the bread, or slice and layer the banana on one side and sprinkle the banana with the spices and cocoa.

Top, slice in half, and eat!
