Chocolate and banana is one of my favorite flavor combinations. I use a sugar free chocolate sauce and puffed kamut to get a candy bar like mouth feel with none of the sugar and fat.

Ingredients

  • ?? cup water
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon coconut nectar
  • 4 packets 100% natural Stevia sweetener (powder)
  • ?? teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • ?? cup puffed kamut
  • 1 banana, peeled and cut into quarters
  • ?? ounce 70% dark chocolate, thinly shaved
  • Cooking Directions

    Add the water, 3 tablespoons cocoa powder, the coconut nectar, and 3 packets of stevia to a blender.

    Cover and blend on low speed until everything is incorporated, about 1 minute. Add xanthan gum and blend until mixture thickens, about another minute. Pour the sauce into a small bowl and reserve.

    Toss the kamut with the remaining 1 teaspoon cocoa powder and remaining packet of stevia.

    Place each quarter of banana in a very small dish or bowl. Pour 1 tablespoon of sauce over each banana. Top with puffed kamut and then the shaved chocolate.

    Tips:

    Cover the remaining chocolate sauce and store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
