Coconut Topped Bananas!

Cocnut Topped Bananas!

I was in dying need of a pick me up this afternoon and this was the little creation that took my breath away.

A creamy peanut butter-and-yogurt layer and crunchy cornflakes in this recipe turn plain bananas into an extraordinary treat.

Calories per banana piece – 63 calories.

1/3 cup cornflakes, coarsely crushed

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)

1. 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.

2. Slice each banana in half crosswise and then lengthwise to make 8 pieces total. Place each piece, cut side up, on a small plate. Spread peanut butter mixture atop banana pieces. Sprinkle evenly with the cornflake mixture. Makes 8 banana halves.
