Healthy “Banana Split”

I realize my food blog is pretty much becoming a dessert blog since so many of my posts are about sweets. I just can’t help it that my favorite meal is dessert.

For snack today, I made a healthy “banana split.” Healthy because there is no ice cream. It’s a sliced banana with warm melted dark chocolate (anti-oxidants!) and toasted pecans.

For each banana, melt a handful of semisweet chocolate chips with a couple of tablespoons of low fat milk. Toast a handful of chopped pecans in a pan under low heat for 5 minutes. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the sliced banana and sprinkle toasted pecans on top.

Dessert is ready in under 10 minutes!
