Do you know what day tomorrow is?It’s National Banana Lover’s Day! Seeing as I haven’t done a theme post in almost two months, I figured this was the perfect occasion to showcase my love for the fruit oft referred to as “nature’s candy bar.” Got extra bananas on hand? Here are 18 healthy banana recipes to use them up:

And a quick and easy recipe:
Banana Breakfast Pops
- 2 bananas
- yogurt of choice - I like nondairy coconut yogurt
- granola of choice OR Healthy Graham Crackers
- mini chocolate chips, coconut shreds, cinnamon sugar, etc.
- popsicle sticks or silverware to insert in the bananas
Pour granola or crushed crackers into a very shallow dish or plate. Peel the bananas, cut them in half, and insert popsicle sticks. Dip into the yogurt or coat with a knife, then roll into the granola or cracker crumbs and add-ons. I stuck the chips on by hand after rolling in the granola. Place on a parchment or wax-lined tray. Freeze. Keep uneaten banana pops in the freezer.
Will you celebrate Banana Lover’s day?
Or are you one of those people who absolutely HATES bananas? It seems like a polarizing food: people either love bananas or hate them. For all of the banana haters out there, rest assured tomorrow’s recipe will have nothing to do with bananas. But it might include chocolate chips. You don’t have a problem with them, right? 😉
