Banana Split Breakfast

This is such a clever idea. Do you love banana splits? Now you can have one for breakfast or lunch. 

However instead of the ice cream, substitute a scoop of cottage cheese or Greek yogurt . 

You can still use a banana and add any fruit and or that nuts you like to make a healthy delicious breakfast treat. See all the interesting healthy combinations.

Kids especially love to make and eat this breakfast recipe that can be drizzled with honey or maple syrup. 

It is perfect for those who are gluten free since no grains are used!

There is no limit to your imagination of what you can add to your banana split.  You make it your way, so every banana split breakfast is different and geared to your personal taste.  

List of Choices: 

1. ground flax
2. all fruit jelly or jam
3. honey
4. maple syrup
5. walnuts
6. pecans
7. berries
8. pineapple
9. banana
10. coconut
11. cocoa nibs
12. raw sunflower seeds ( unsalted)

Banana Split Breakfasts not only look inviting, they taste amazing. In fact after I ate mine I decided it makes a fabulous dessert!! Maybe in a parfait glass layered - yum

Great Passover Breakfast when you can't eat grain- 

During Passover we abstain from leavened products with includes breads, cereals, and some grains. Breakfast is frequently a challange- so this week I've come up with 4 ideas:

1. 2-3 ingredient banana pancakes ( gluten free and kosher for Passover)

2. Low Carb Cream Cheese Pancakes ( GF and K for Passover)

3. Matzo Brei ( using GF Matzo )

4. This yummy banana split breakfast-

You can make them as healthy as you like- fruit, nuts, and yogurt offer some powerful nutrition! Add ground flax seeds for some extra fiber!

  1. I love dessert for the breakfast! This looks indeed very delicious, Judee.

  2. Angie,
    I guess it kind of is a dessert but without the sugar- it does taste good!!

  3. Yummy! I vote for cacao nibs as topping!


    1. Shirley,
      I had them for the first time and although they are not sweet, they taste great added to anything sweet.

    2. They really are wonderful, aren't they, Judee? I love them in place of chocolate chips in my cookie recipes!

  4. What a great way to liven up breakfast! I'll take mine with hot fudge!

    1. It's your choice- there are so many ways to make this work- hot fudge? hmm was not on my breakfast list- sounds like you want a rel banana split

  5. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic
    but I had to tell someone!
