Now that it’s fall, all I want to do is bake and eat warm, yummy treats.  And yes, I do that in moderation.  But this recipe right here is so decadent, you’re going to think you’re eating treat.  But it’s totally healthy and you can even modify it to make it however you want.
One of everyone’s favorite thing’s about fall is pumpkin spice.  Now, I’m not normally one of those people, but this is the perfect combo of creamy banana, comforting spices and deliciousness.  So follow my recipe below and enjoy 🙂
All you do is take all of the ingredients below, put them in a jar, mix them up, put it in the fridge overnight and heat it in the microwave for 30 seconds in the next morning.  You could also just add all these ingredients to your normal oatmeal and enjoy in a bowl like the picture above.
