0 hours 14 mins
¾ – 1 Cup water
4 Bananas, each cut into 8-10 slices
3 Tbsp. mini chocolate chips
1 Tbsp. Land ‘o Lakes Light butter, divided
Sugar Free Maple Syrup
Swerve Confectioners sugar for dusting (optional)
1. Mix the Kodiak mix and ¾ cup of water in a bowl. Add a little more (if needed) to loosen the batter so you can dunk the banana slices easily. Add the chips and gently stir in.
2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray. Add about 1 teaspoon per batch of “hats”.
3. Dip your banana slices in the batter (be sure to get some chips on each slice and put in the skillet to cook on first side. When the bottom is cooked (about 2 minutes), flip and cook on the other side. (1-2 minutes)
4. Immediately plate 8-10 slices (one banana per person) and drizzle with the syrup. Put some of the swerve in a small sifter and dust over the “hats”.
NOTE: These are the cutest little bites of deliciousness and so easy to make. If you haven’t used Kodiak Cakes mix before, it is a self-proclaimed powerhouse for protein and whole grains. I use it for all kinds of things like waffles, pancakes, muffins and cookies. In this recipe, the addition of some mini chocolate chips will bring out the kid in everyone (who doesn’t remember their mother’s chocolate chip pancakes?) Don’t be alarmed when you are cooking them and little pools of the batter form under the banana. That’s what is creating the “hat”. These will hold in a 200-degree oven while you make several batches. Then, just serve warm on individual plates or on a big platter. As always, feel free to use real maple syrup or confectioners sugar. For this, I’m just watching the sugar and calories (believe me, you won’t miss either).
This is a fun one to have the kids help with. Set them up with a plastic knife to cut the bananas and let them stir in the chips. You’ll just have to watch them when they are cooked….they tend to just pop these in their little mouths and go for it! What am I talking about? So do the adults! Enjoy.
