S.W. Recipe: Baked Almond Butter Bananas

“Hot stuffed bananas! Getcha hot stuffed bananas!”

 

If you know team S.W., you know we’re all about eating well, but that we know how important it is to indulge (looking at you pastries/bagels/other refined-and-fabulous-tasting treats). So we’re always on the lookout for our food version of Prince Charming: healthy, sweet treats that satisfy but won’t leave us feeling sluggish or bloated. (Right now, we’re really into Hungry Root’s Black Bean Brownie Butter and Big Spoon Roasters Chai Spice nut butter.)

 

While we love scouring the interwebs and shelves for our next favorite, edible find, we also get a kick out of experimenting in the kitchen, which is where this recipe comes in.

Astrology 101

We’re all at least somewhat familiar with our zodiac sign – but how much influence does it really have on our lives? It arguably depends on your perspective. On one hand, you have some who will blame communication woes or technical glitches on Mercury’s retrograde. On the opposite end, you’ll have those who roll their eyes at the mere thought of planets influencing, say, a computer meltdown.
