This healthier take on a banana split provides gut-nourishing probiotics, 24 grams of protein and 9 grams of fiber. Soaked nuts and seeds replace granola for a little crunch (plus they’re easier to digest and more nutritious than raw nuts), ground flaxseed adds a boost of omega-3 fats, and a sprinkle of cinnamon helps to keep blood sugar balanced.
Protein-Packed Breakfast Banana Split
In small bowl, combine almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds. Cover with filtered water and stir in 1/4 teaspoon unrefined salt. Cover and let mixture soak on the counter overnight. (Note: This makes them easier to digest and unlocks more nutrients). In separate small bowl, soak goji berries in a small amount of filtered water overnight in the refrigerator.
In the morning, peel and slice a banana in half lengthwise. Place on a plate.
In small bowl, mix yogurt and collagen powder. Spoon mixture on top of banana.
Drain the nut and seed mixture and goji berries. Sprinkle on top of yogurt.
Sprinkle on ¼ teaspoon cinnamon (or more), ground flaxseed and honey, if desired.
