After making my last batch of raw millionaire bites it made me think how nice they would taste with some banana. So I adapted the recipe and sure enough another perfect treat that consists of four different layers that melt into each other. Not only are these little beauties rich and smooth in taste but they are healthy too. Packed with nutrients, vitamins and minerals that help provide energy, anti inflammatory, reduces the risk of anaemia and boosts the immune system – to name but a few.
Bananas do contain sugars but these are natural occurring sugars A medium banana contains around 14 grams of sugar but they are also filled with nutrients that your body needs for good health, including fibre, potassium and B vitamins.
These bites are perfectly balanced out with a smooth melt in your mouth cashew base, topped with the sweet banana and the gooey date and cacao that adds in a depth of richness.
