My weekend was simple and quiet. My favorite kind. The only thing I wanted to do was practice yoga and nap. Saturday afternoon I had an urge to do something with those bananas waiting to be ravaged, so I dressed them up extra fancy and took some photos in their new getup.
Bananas have never been on my top 10 list of most delicious foods. I prefer juicier, messier fruits such as watermelon and mulberries and peaches and mango. But over the past couple of years, I’ve fallen in love with the transformations bananas undergo in some of my favorite dishes including chocolate milkshakes, acai bowls, kale smoothies and most recently, these cinnamon spiced banana bars.
These easy-to-make bars are wonderful for an afternoon or late-night snack. They take only five minutes to make and even less to eat. I used sunflower seed butter as a topping to make these nut-free, but feel free to add toppings of your choice.
Cinnamon Spiced Banana Bars

2 tbs. ground cinnamon

1. Slice bananas lengthwise into halves.
2. Drizzle 1 tbs. of sunflower seed butter onto each half.
