Give me the carbs, all the carbs. You guys some days i swear i’m just a carb monster. I mean, it’s probably because i do leg workouts on the regular {like 4 times a week, leg days are my fav} and burn lots of calories while working out, but seriously I’ve got in the habit of following up my meals with a ‘carby treat’.

hands in the air if you like a little post-meal treat???? I mean sometimes you just need one bite; but something to satisfy that carb-crazed sweet tooth.

now i’ve come a long way. years ago my post-meal treat would be little debbie zebra cakes, oatmeal cream pies and nutty buddy bars {oh the bliss of innocence before i learned about processed foods}. Now those little debbie treats don’t sound nearly as appealing, but i still like sweet treats, just healthier, homemade versions.

And i love baking with bananas. You now those over-ripe bananas browning in your fruit basket; yes, they make amazing baked goodies!

Not that you need convincing, but here are three reasons I dig healthy baked banana goodies {and you should too}:

  1. They’re great for meal prep, make ahead and enjoy all week long.
  2. They’re extremely kid and family friendly.
  3. The options are endless, you can turn over-ripe bananas into muffins, breads, cookies, pancakes, overnight oats, french toast, granola bars and more!
