Foodie Friday

The weekend is upon us friends – WOOHOOO!!!! Phil and I are looking forward to exploring the city more this weekend, and of course, enjoying some delicious eats! We’ve been on our best behavior when it comes to sweets, given our lenten sacrifice, so this weeks Foodie Friday is a heavenly dessert that tastes sinful but really isn’t! These open faced cacao banana sammies are both nutritious and delicious and take nearly nothing to make.photo-4

Cacao Banana Sammies

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 4 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 ripe banana (sliced)
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 4 graham crackers

In a large bowl mash ripe avocado with almond milk, cacao powder, 3 tbsp honey, and pinch of salt until smooth (use mixer or blender if available). Melt butter in pan over medium heat, add remaining tbsp honey and banana slices to cook for about 10 minutes (rotating 1/2 way through). While the bananas are cooking down, smear the avocado pudding onto the graham squares and plate. Once the bananas are done spoon a few onto each sammie and drizzle remaining sauce over all squares.

I have to admit, the picture doesn’t do them justice…they were awesome! I’ve had the avocado pudding with other things: nuts, berries, hemp seeds, etc… but I love using it with the graham and cooked bananas to really make things interesting!!

’til next time, keep smiling! 🙂
