Chilly ‘Naner, Nib, and Nut Butter Sandwich

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on June 25, 2010

Happy Friday!

IMG_0471

I just couldn’t resist! :biggrin:

I told you last night that I discovered a fun post-workout treat. I decided to make a twist on the classic banana and nut butter ‘sandwich’.

I’m sure this snack is not new to many of you, but it was a first for me!

Chilly ‘Naner, Nib, ‘n Nut Butter Sandwich

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana, sliced along the length to create 2 halves
  • 1-2 tbsp peanut butter (or nut butter of your choice)
  • Cacao nibs or chocolate chips for sprinkling

 

Directions: Slice banana along the length to create two halves. Spread with a layer of nut butter and sprinkle with cacao nibs. Assemble the banana back together by placing the halves onto each other. Pop into a container and place in the freezer for 1-4 hours, making sure not to allow it to completely freeze. Enjoy whole or by slicing into rounds, after a hot + sweaty workout!

Mmmmm! Loved this after my run yesterday! It was so refreshing. The key is to not freeze it for too long. The goal here is cold, but not hard and frozen completely.

IMG_0496

The cacao nibs gave it a great texture too!

I started this morning with a fresh juice composed of 1 large beet, 2 carrots, 1/2 a lemon, small piece of ginger, and 1/2 a cuke:

Along with Japanese Sencha green tea

I got to work making Glo Dough and Chocolate Macaroons for the Oakville Organic Farmer’s Market tomorrow.

I am having fun experimenting in the kitchen with new goodies!

The rest of the day will be devoted to making Glo Bars for tomorrow, paper work, and banking. I also need to call the government and find out how the new HST tax is going to effect my business.

Word on the street is that Eric is making me breakfast this morning so I am eagerly awaiting getting my tummy (haha I just wrote ‘yummy’!) filled.

Today’s question: What are your favourite desserts or treats, if you could have anything in the world?

I am a pretty classic girl…I love cupcakes or a slice of cake with tons of delicious piped, thick, frosting. I also love pumpkin pie, rich and moist banana bread, macaroons, soft ginger cookies, and cookie dough. Mmm, this just gave me a huge craving to make banana bread now!

I’ll see you later. Have a great Friday!

Mmm, I love banana bread too! But if I see carrot cake on a menu anywhere, I have a very hard time resisting it.

Angela (Oh She Glows) June 25, 2010 at 8:46 am

Carrot cake is so good…I had an amazing raw carrot cake at a restaurant called Live in TO, I should try to make one some day. It was craaaazy good.

Girl I give you props for making juices without any fruit (besides lemon)! I must have at least an apple or an orange in the mix to drink them.
Good luck baking today!
Favorite dessert would probably have to be a brownie sundae.

Triathlonbabe aka Grace June 25, 2010 at 11:49 am

I love that same juice recipe without fruit as well….I think it’s the bit of tartness that addsto it, although I tried my juice w/an apple and jicama last week and it was YUMMY GOOD!

Reply

Danielle June 25, 2010 at 8:44 am

Ah, the classic cold or frozen banana. So versatile!

As for favorite desserts…right now I am on a thumbprint cooke kick (also known as a birdsnest cookie), prowling the local bakeries looking for the perfect speciman. The problem is so many people make it more like shorbread with a splot of jam in the middle for show. No, this is wrong my friends! Ideally, it is of a nutty, substantial, faintly grainy texture, more sweet biscuit than typical cookie really. And it should have a nice well in the middle to hold all the jammy awesomeness. There’s a little hippie bakery about 5 miles away from my house that is totally worth cycling to when the urge hits hard. Otherwise, the Whole Foods near my house has a mouthwatering vegan version – if you see one in your travels, I highly recommend this marvelous cookie!

Angela (Oh She Glows) June 25, 2010 at 8:48 am

hahah I love this comment! They should have LOTS of jam in the middle for sure. I need to make some!

That was new to me when I met my husband. I never heard of bananas with pb and chocolate chips, but my father-in-law apparently made it all the time for Matt as a kid.

A warm brownie topped with vanilla ice cream is hands down my favorite. Followed closely by tiramisu. But I don’t think I’ve ever met a dessert I didn’t like!

My favourite treat would have to be my mum’s Lemon Delicious pudding. Warm soft sponge like cake on top, yummy not too thick or think lemony sauce on the bottom. She made me one when I was home last week . . . now I am homesick just thinking about it!! SO good!!

Mmm… I like the same sort of desserts! A slice of moist cake with rich buttercream frosting, a soft oatmeal raisin or ginger cookie, banana bread (or pumpkin bread!), or a hot brownie topped with ice cream are at the top of my list. :D Okay, I shouldn’t think about this stuff so early in the morning!!

Oooh, I adore PB and banana sandwhiches but I never in a million years thought to semi freeze them first. You are so clever :) It’d be perfect during this hot and humid DC weather!

I love love love love love red velvet cake. One of my wedding cake tiers will be vegan red velvet cake. Uh oh, right now I’m seriously craving some red velvet action…

Miranda @ Mirandasjeans June 25, 2010 at 9:19 am

I would have to say that my all time favorite go to dessert is Cheesecake. Specifically Capuccino cheesecake, any coffee flavored cheese cake. Not too thick that you can’t enjoy the flavors and are smacking your tounge to try and swallow it. Just nice and moist and light that you can enjoy a full slice.

I’m most definitely a cookie girl – classic chocolate chip are my fave, but I like ANY kind! Ginger, sugar with thick icing, oatmeal raisin, chocolate, wafer, shortbread, butter, sandwich with icing in the middle … they all make my heart beat fast!

Hmm, not a big dessert fan. Crazy, I know! I’m not into sweet stuff…or salty for that matter!! I love fresh and crisp! Not even a big fruit fan! Haha, well, when the mood strikes on a rare occasion I love ginger cookies or some dark chocolate, or hot almond milk mixed with black strap molasses and cinnamon. :)

Reply

Jamie @ Tearaveler June 25, 2010 at 9:25 am

Your pictures are gorgeous!

My favorite ‘treat’ is hands down a banana boat while camping (slice halfway through a banana, scoop out the top half of the naner, add pieces of chocolate, stuff with marshmellows – close as much of the peel around it as your can – wrap in tin foil and toss on the fire for awhile)… seriously, it is the best – ooey-gooey treat!

While I LOVE pumpkin pie and pecan pie, I can’t get enough fresh-made chocolate chip cookies and milk. And fresh, rich, fudgy brownies and milk. I like them both “medium rare.” Just lightly crisp on the outside and goooooey on the inside. Not crunchy. Not chewy. Gooooey! I wanna have to lick the melted chocolate off my fingers!

Reply

Therese June 25, 2010 at 9:34 am

I’m a HUGE fan of a smeared peanut butter banana before or after a run! So yummy yet so simple! LOVE the idea of the cacao nibs too!

I’m such a dessert freak, I’ll eat almost any dessert! Ha ha ha I LOVE cake, mostly I just eat the cake part first to get it out of the way and then savour the frosting. Also a ginormous cheesecake fan and dessert “bars”!

Oh…geez…look what you did to me…now I want dessert!!!

Any treats flavored with almond extract make me swoon and drool in equal measure. At our wedding we seved almond cookies during coctail hour and almond cake at the reception. One can never have too much almond goodness in my opinion! :D

I think your banana and nut butter sandwich might just become one of my favourite desserts! (although i doubt i’d find it on a menu anywhere!) i’m starting to think that the frozen banana might just be one of the most amazing fruits EVER!

Love the banana thing!!! We did something very similar a couple weeks ago, and it’s my new favorite dessert. Not quite as healthy as your version, but I can’t believe how much the banana tastes like ice cream when frozen! http://www.neverhomemaker.com/2010/06/frozen-banana-bites.html

Bethany @ Not Unless I'm Being Chased June 25, 2010 at 9:57 am

I’m definitely going to have to try the semi-frozen nanner treat. The temps are getting a little out of control in my area and I’m training for a marathon, so it’s not exactly like I can just skip my runs, heat or not! The banana rounds will cool me down, for sure.
On a side note, when I scrolled down to the picture of the juice, the angle of the photo made it look like the juice is sliding off the sill so my instinct was to jump forward to catch it! Ridiculous internet delusions! :) Happy Friday!

Angelfood cake is definitely my favourite, especially topped with homemade whipped cream and fruit! I’m ok with the boxed version but I like it best when made from scratch. I’m also known for nomming pumpkin pie and skor cheesecakes (when made fresh).

If I’m just looking for a snack though I’m more often found digging to the bottom of a chip bag than anything sweet.

Jil @ Peace, Love & Munchies June 25, 2010 at 10:02 am

Ohh – that banana looks amazing. PB and banana are just such a classic combo – and adding cacao nibs to it…nom! Also – I just love red velvet cake…or cupcakes. Or chocolate cupcakes with coconut frosting. mmm

OMG they are so tasty. They are made by Almond Dream (Soy Dream, Rice Dream). I get them in the health food section of a local Safeway. They are the only place I’ve seen them, but I haven’t looked at Whole Foods – I wouldn’t be surprised to see them there. Takes a lot of will power not to eat all of them at once!

Lexi June 25, 2010 at 2:54 pm

I have my Mom’s recipe, which I consider to be UTTERLY divine. The original recipe has eggs in it, but I’m working to elimate them now so the cake will be vegan.

The cake itself is lactose free, and the frosting could be made dairy free by substituting dairy free butter (i.e. Nucoa or Earth Balance) and dairy free cream cheese (i.e. Tofutti).

If you, or anyone else for that matter, is interested, I’d be happy to post the recipe on my blog.

I can resist pretty much any kind of dessert, except CAKE. Chocolate cake, cheesecake, red velvet cake, ooey-gooey birthday cake slathered in rich frosting – you name it, I <3 it. My favorite, though, is the pound cake I make every Christmas. The recipe was my great-great aunt's, and I have fond memories of helping my grandmother make it when I was a little girl :)

Dark Chocolate Truffles, chocolate brownie sundae and anything pretty much dark chocolate. I also love Creme Brulee especially from this little Irish Pub my hubby and I enjoy going to every now and then. I’m hoping to find some of those nibs you always post about.

The banana & PB is usually my pre-run meal, especially a long run but with long runs I always add Ezekial Cinnamon Raisin english muffin.

Dark chocolate….or cookies – usually plain old Tollhouse choc. chip, but lately we’ve found variations that are even better (101 Cookbook’s Itsy bitsy, Jungle Jack Hannah’s healthier version)

Hi Angela,

I have been reading your blog for quite a while now and it is truly inspirational. I have a silly question. Do you juice your beets raw? What brand is your juicer? Beets are quite hard, it must require one beast of a juicer, no?
My fave dessert would be ice cream! Haagen-Daz dulce de leche! There is also a great creamery here in Montreal that makes a kick ass burnt maple caramel one! mmm!

I love dairy based desserts like creme brulee or coconut cream pie, but sadly have issues with dairy. As such my dessert is usually just some wine. I have made little chocolate bites with coconut oil etc, but never on a routine basis.

I can’t choose a favorite dessert. It’s like making me choose a favorite child. Actually, harder, because as much as I hate to admit it, I do have several favorite students that have me completely wrapped around their fingers. Desserts, though, I can’t choose. Zeppolis…anything with chocolate…ooh, or cheesecake with fresh fruit! I really want to work on a good vegan cheesecake, though!

and i have a HUGE sweet tooth. i think brownies are one of my favourite sweets, but cookies are easily my favourite thing to bake.

Well, my new favorite GUILT-FREE dessert is banana soft serve since you’ve introduced it to me – toppings optional :)

My favorite bad for you dessert is hands-down chocolate souffle cake that is warm and has the melted chocolate center. Just recently I had one at a restaurant that was made in an individual serving bowl fresh and hot from the oven with a toasted marshmellow top!! unbelievable…

And surprising to most people more than regular chocolate chip cookies (with butter/milk) I am totally addicted to these barley sweetened malt chocolate chip cookies from a LA bakery called Manis. I only allow myself to get one once every couple months….so good….

Ooh! Such a fun post–great pictures, it’s definitely making me hungry. I love my mom’s sponge roll cake filled with whipped cream and fresh raspberries and other berries. Yummm

If they do freeze too much, just use the pieces to make a banana soft-serve! The soft-serve is sooooo good when made with peanut butter :)

That looks so delicious! Do you find cocoa nibs sometimes taste a bit burnt? I love the crunch but can’t get used to the taste!

They are very bitter…that is why I find they are best paired with a sweet food (like banana soft serve)

i absolutely LOVE pie, saskatoon berry, apple or pumpkin pie are my favourite. I also love macaroons. Also cheesecake. I don’t eat much of that stuff which is probably a good thing, but i indulge every now and again

My favorite dessert…. honestly… fresh, in-season berries (rasp, blue, black, straw). out of season, chocolate ice cream. :-D

Oh wow that banana sandwich looks AWESOME :)

My fav dessert as of late HAS to be frozen yogurt. It’s ridiculous how addicting it is!!!

Without a doubt I would have to say cheesecake!
Any flavour will do, they are all AMAZING!

I pretty much like anything with icing or ice cream. Coconut macaroons are a favorite also, as well as molten lava cake any kind of fruit cobbler or fruit pie a la mode. Yum!

I can’t wait to a chilly banana sandwich!
Fave dessert: creme brulee, whether making it myself (I actually own a small torch for doing the top) or ordering it. :) *scrumptious*

Here is a great recipe for PB Banana “ice cream”
1 frozen banana
1 T peanut butter
1 T honey
Process for a few minutes in a food processor, it turns out like creamy banana ice cream. Yummy!

I just want to say that I made the cold banana snack with peanut butter and cinnamon, and I am addicted!! I don’t even need ice cream or cake! When I crave something sweet and decadent, I put this baby together. It works like a charm! The only trouble is trying to keep it to one a day! (So I can keep some variety in my diet.)
