Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great week so far. I'm currently writing this blogpost on a Monday and this recipe was made yesterday, on a lazy Sunday that suddenly turned into a recipe developing day. Had to put on a bra to grab some bananas for this recipe.


Bra for bananas? Totally worth it!


I didn't had any bananas around it they were necessary for this recipe, so I put on a bra and went on a mission to grab a single banana. Yeah, that's right. In my defense I have a supermarket round on the corner of my house and it's totally valid to go just for the essentials, in this case, a banana.



Okay, I have been nuts and bananas for this combo; anything with a good texture, a delicious taste and easy to make, you are going to love this recipe because it's also so nourishing. It makes a great protein snack or dessert, soon you'll know why.



The ingredients on these bites just work perfectly, just like a beautiful song. The banana taste with with flavor and creaminess from the vanilla protein combined with tahini seed butter... plus the amazing toppings, shredded coconut, chocolate pecan crisps and the amazing crunch of these maple cinnamon hemp seeds.



I include amazing and dreamy flavor inside this recipe! Maple cinnamon, chocolate, pecans, coconut, vanilla and tahini.
