1 banana
2 tbsp unsweetened natural nut butter (such as cashew butter, peanut butter, or almond butter)
1/3 cup total of your favorite crushed or chopped nuts and seeds (such as almonds, pistachios, sesame seeds, chia seeds, flax seeds, unsweetened coconut flakes, etc.)

1. Spread a thin layer of nut butter on the entire banana.


2. Spread chopped nuts and seeds on a shallow plate and roll banana over it, pressing lightly so that the nuts and seeds stick to the banana. Slice covered banana into 1-inch thick slices. Eat immediately or place in the freezer until solid and then transfer to a zipped bag to store.


Optional additions: unsweetened cocoa powder, ground cinnamon, raw cacao nibs, sea salt


Note: Each daily serving is 1/2 banana (or approximately 3-4 sushi pieces).
