Brazilian Bananas

It’s Sunday!

I swear I didn’t think it would come.. As we prepare for the work week, my decisions this weekend totally have my cravings out of wack. I’ve pretty much indulged since Wednesday and continued through this morning with cold pizza for breakfast– oops.

So given that I am waking up with a splitting headache this morning, I am most definitely prepping our go to chicken for this week along with our other favorites that always get us back on the train.

I felt this share was appropriate given that I am almost certain the sugar craving will be here by tonight or tomorrow evening. It usually takes me a good two days to kick the sugar cravings and even though this recipe essentially just speaks to it, there’s only so much black coffee a gal can drink.

This quick and fun treat will save you from diving head first into your cupboard looking for the devils sweetness!


Brazilian Bananas
Servings: 2

2 bananas, sliced
1 Tablespoon coconut oil
Chopped walnuts, optional
2 Dashes of Cinnamon or pumpkin spice seasoning



Melt coconut oil in a skillet on medium high heat. Place sliced bananas in the skillet and cook without moving for about 6 minutes. Flip and repeat on other side. Transfer bananas to your favorite glass or bowl and sprinkle with chopped walnuts and a few dashes of seasoning.

If you’re feeling extra wonderful- top with a dollop of whipped coconut cream.


Wholesome Joy
