OK, so maybe the title is a little bit of a stretch. I took this quick cell phone shot of my evening snack – something I decided on a whim to try. I had a ripe banana and some pure unsweetened cocoa powder, and I figured it just might work. And it did! Although now that I’m thinking about it, cocoa is a bean… does that mean it’s not Paleo? Oops. But who cares – at least there’s no added sugar, and you only need a very very tiny amount of cocoa powder.
All you need is the pure unsweetened cocoa powder and a banana that is at least ripe enough to no longer have any green on it. Actually, the more brown the better. Up to a certain point anyways. No rotting allowed.
My plate has half of a big room-temperature banana on it, sprinkled lightly with cocoa powder. Pat the powder down onto the banana slice before you pop them in your mouth though – accidentally inhaling dry cocoa powder is not fun. The ripe banana gives you all the sweet you need, especially if your taste buds are fully adjusted to the Paleo way of eating. Mine definitely are.
