Banana + Raw Organic Honey + Peanut Butter + Carob Functional Snack

18 Dec

When hunger strikes in the middle of the day, and I crave something sweet, fulfilling, and healthy banana is always my go to fruit.

Bananas are soooo good because:

* They have high levels of thryptophan, which is converted into serotonin – the happy +good mood neurotransmitter

* They are packed with potassium, which helps prevent muscle cramps as well as nighttime leg cramps

* Regulate blood sugar

* Have high levels of Vitamin B-6, therefore helps reduce swelling, help the production of white blood cells, and strengthen the nervous system

* Have iron, which helps prevent and combat anemia, and strengthen your blood

* They have magnesium, which helps keep blood pressure normal, keep your bones strong and a steady heart rhythm

* Rich in pectin, which is an enzyme that aids digestion. They are a natural anti acid and act as prebiotic.

Now, I combine this amazing fruit with Peanuts, which are a good source of Vitamin E, niacin, folate, protein and manganese.

Then, I add Organic Raw Honey which contains flavonoids, and is anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial

And Carob, that is high in fiber, and has calcium.

Bee pollen, Amaranth and Maca Powder will each get their own post because they deserve it.

 

Method

1. Slice a banana

2. Mix 2 tbsp of Natural Organic Crunchy Peanut Butter with 2 tsp Carob Powder, 1 tbsp Carob Chips, 1 tbsp Organic Raw Honey, 1 pinch Cinnamon

3. On a plate sprinkle 1 teaspoon of Maca powder, and 1 tsp Bee Pollen.

4. Sprinkle 2 tsp Amaranth on top of the sliced bananas.

5. Decorate the plate with some extra Carob Chips.

 

Bom Apetite!

    Thanks for this amazing snack and the fact that there is maca involved makes it super worthwhile for me, as I’m always looking for new meals where I can combine maca powder. I’m taking maca for almost 2 years now for my energy levels and I take it in combination with something, so it’s taste won’t be so dominant. Thanks for the recipe
