Move over calorie and fat laden banana bread (well except for my BANANA bread recipe) there is a new healthier banana nut breakfast bread concoction in town! And it takes WAY less time to make too!
One bagel thin (I used Thomas brand), if you are on a gluten free diet use ½ gluten free bagel , (such as Udi’s) sliced thin
1 tablespoon reduced fat cream cheese
1/3 of a medium banana (preferably over ripe)
1 tablespoon of chopped nuts (walnuts, slivered almonds work well)
Toast the bagel to desired doneness. Meanwhile mash the banana very well in a small bowl. Add the cream cheese and mix well. Spread the banana cream cheese mixture on the bagel, sprinkle with nuts and serve.
Makes 1 serving
