I LOVE the mix of salt and sweet! I just can’t get enough of it. So when the norwegian health magazine “Shape Up” wanted to make an article of me and on my favourite healthy snack, this is what I came up with; A healthy banoffee pie recipe!
It was easy: I love bananas, I love peanuts, I LOVE chocolate and I love a creamy texture. In addition to that my go to dessert when I lived in London and New York was Banoffee Pie. So this healthy dessert is like a sweet and salty healthy banoffee pie, served in a glass. And I must say; It is one of the most delicious dessert I have ever made. YUM!
This healthy banoffee pie dessert served in a glass contains loads of healthy nutrients. Potassium from the bananas, healthy unsaturated fats and vitamin A from the avocado (yes, it contais avocado, but none of my guests guessed it!). Else it is only natural and unrefined ingredients. But the healthiness comes as a bonus (as in all of my other recipes), it is the taste of this delicious healthy banoffee pie dessert that is the TOP 1 reason to make it this weekend!
