I have always hated bananas. I realize that "hate" is a strong word but it really is the best one that I can use to describe the strong aversion that I have to the taste, smell and texture of bananas.

Until 3 weeks ago.

Three weeks ago I woke up and thought: I want banana and almond butter toast.

So I made one.

And I have been eating them almost every morning since (I think I just heard a collective gasp of surprise from all of my family and friends). :)

I have been on a roasted veggie kick lately and I had the thought floating around in my head: why not roasted banana? (Yes, I do frequently talk to myself).

Banana, honey and almond butter. yum

I made this for breakfast this morning and it was every bit as good as I imagined.

Roasted Banana & Almond Butter Spread:

Recipe inspiration came from here

1 banana cut nearly in half length-wise
drizzle with honey
sprinkle with cinnamon

bake in 350 degree oven for approx 10 minutes

4 Tbs. almond butter
roasted banana

combine almond butter, banana and dash of salt in blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. Spread generously over Woodstock or other grainy bread.
