It’s been a little bit since I’ve brought you a dessert, and today, I’m bringing you a healthy one…Bananas Foster! These bananas are sweetened with honey rather than sugar and is from our new Fix-It and Forget-It Healthy 5-Ingredient Cookbook. With only 5 ingredients (minus the spices), it’s a “snap” to toss together and will be ready for you in just 1 1/2-2 hours. So, this is a great one to stick in your slow cooker while you’re putting finishing touches on dinner, then have ready for you after your meal has had time to digest a bit, time to chat, then a nice warm dessert for later. These would be delicious over some frozen yogurt, or even some plain Greek yogurt!
