Sometimes…

 

I crave chocolate…

 

And sometimes one of these is enough…

ghirardelli-intense-twilight-delight1And sometimes those single serving sizes are just not going to cut it!   I am a chocolate LOVER!  I probably eat it everyday.  I believe in moderation in all things so chocolate is most definitely in my life.

This was developed as an alternative to eating the whole bag of these single serving goodies (since dark chocolate is good for you right!)  and still feeling satisfied!!

I know that feeling when you need chocolate… and you need it now.  This option is fast, easy, filling, and much better than devouring a whole bag of those single serving size chocolates 🙂

Put a about a teaspoon coconut oil in a medium heat pan until melted

Slice up a whole banana.

Put the slices of banana in the pan flat side down over medium heat for about 1 minute.   Then flip each banana slice to the other side to cook other side for 1 minute.

Sprinkle with a tiny bit of sea salt (optional, but gives it a little extra something).  Then place on a plate.

 

Now take some dark chocolate and chop in tiny pieces (I use the single serving size of Gharirdelli 72% cocoa dark chocolate pictured above that is ALWAYS in my house).

 

Sprinkle chopped pieces on warm bananas.

 

Wait a minute or so (if you can).  The warmth from the bananas melts the chocolate and it’s heavenly.
