I’ll be the first to admit that I have a weakness for sweets. Put a gluten-free cake in front of me and I’ll have it for dinner, thank you.
But for the sake of my health I try to balance my sugar intake, which means cutting back on baking *sad face* It doesn’t help that my husband doesn’t have much of a sweet tooth so I just end up eating all of my desserts on my own … And since the humidity levels in Queensland are outrageous, my desserts end up going bad in 2 days or less, and putting them in the fridge basically makes an my gluten-free dessert inedible. So that just means I have to stuff my face with sugar for an entire day, which is never good.
So if you haven’t noticed, I’ve cut back on my baking recipes a bit just for that reason. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve still been baking and eating chocolate goodness. But I thought I’d share a favourite healthy dessert of mine I’ve been eating more of recently. It’s sugar-free (other than natural sugars, of course), and it’s customisable to your tastes.
Below, I’ve listed the ingredients I use. There are no particular measurements for this. It’s completely up to you how much of each ingredient you want to use.
- Large banana
- Peanut butter
- Unsweetened shredded coconut
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
For reference, you can take a look at the pictures of my how I prepare it.
