For some reason at our house we really like anything that could be given the name Cocoa Nutty Monkey. We have a Cocoa Nutty Monkey Pie, Shake (I'll be sharing this recipe soon) and even a Play-Doh toy by that name.
This morning, I was on the internet doing some research and I viewed an image of something like this recipe. Unfortunately, I didn't pay much attention to it so I have no idea where the original image may have come from. I went back through my history and did a search for the ingredients with no luck. But, the idea of this recipe lingered in my subconscious. When the kids came down for breakfast, I had to make them! This is our new favorite breakfast recipe. The kids asked if we can eat these everyday.
dried coconut flakes
Here's what I did...
Cut your ripe but firm bananas into bite sized pieces.
Roll them in cocoa powder (raw or regular, try ChocoSol for raw cocoa powder- use a coffee grinder to grind it more if yours, like mine, is a bit coarse).
Place a dollop of your favorite nut butter on top.
Take a pinch of unsweetened coconut flakes in your fingers and press them into the nut butter dollop.
That's it. I hope you love them!
