Coconut is known to speed up metabolism, improve heart health, and stabilize blood sugar. Combine this with bananas, a creamy fruit rich with potassium and other vitamins and minerals, and you have one nutrient-packed breakfast.Ingredients
1/3 cup cornflakes, coarsely crushed (or other high fiber cereal)
2 tablespoons flaked coconut
2 tablespoons vanilla fat-free, low-calorie yogurt
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 bananas (each about 5 ounces or about 6 inches long)
In a small skillet, combine crushed corn flakes and coconut; cook and stir over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until coconut is starting to brown. Remove from heat; set aside. In a small bowl, combine yogurt and peanut butter.
Slice each banana in half crosswise and then lengthwise to make 8 pieces total. Spread peanut butter mixture atop banana pieces. Sprinkle evenly with the coconut and cornflake (or other fiber cereal) mixture. Makes 8 banana halves. You can also slice the bananas into smaller pieces and place in a bowl for a sweet treat after dinner!
