"Carb Fake Out" Bananas


  • 1 Small Banana
  • 2 Tbsp of blanched/sliced/chopped Almonds (or another nut if you prefer)
  • 1 Tsp of Chia Seeds
  • 2 Tsp of Ground Flax Seeds
  • Spray Spectrum Canola Oil or Pam

Step 1

Take your peeled banana and slice right down the middle (you can even do it in thirds). Then spray each side of your banana with your canola oil or pam spray.

Step 2

Heat up the frying pan to medium heat. While your pan is getting warm, start "faking out" your banana: 

In a shallow bowl or plate, mix your nuts, chia seeds and ground flax seeds. This will become the "breading" for your banana. 

"Bread" both sides of each sliced, sprayed banana at a time with the "carb fake out" mixture. You can put a little muscle into the pressing, that way the breading really sticks to the banana. Depending on the thickness of the banana and the heat of the pan, sear your breaded banana for approximately 3-4 minutes per side. Personally, I cook the banana until some caramelization start to happen.  

Step 3

Serve with any of your breakfast friends: eggs and turkey bacon, add it to your steel cut oats, you can even eat it with a scoop of almond butter for a quick power snack.
