Choco-Banana Sauce

Here’s an easy and pretty-darn-healthy topping for you. It’s not attractive, but . . .


I used it to top some peanut butter oatmeal, but you could use it as “hot fudge” in Banana Split Oatmeal, or heck, just use it on a regular banana split! 🙂

Choco-Banana Sauce

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Cook Time: 2 minutes

Yield: serves 1

What you'll need:

  • 1/3 banana, mashed thoroughly
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

How to make it:

  1. Combine all ingredients. You could either blend them up if you have a mini blender or food processor, or just mash them with a fork as I did. Obviously, blending it will give it a better consistency (just look at the photos as proof of the terrible consistency I achieved with my fork!).
  2. Heat on the stove in a small saucepan on low, OR zap it in the microwave for 20-30 seconds. Either way, you may need to add drops of water to keep it thin enough.

    Looks yummy! I think I’ll top your banana baked oatmeal with this… talk about breakfast gone bananas!

    I made this as a topping for my Tiramisu Cheesecake Overnight Oatmeal (see December Oatmeal Enthusiast blog) instead of using chocolate chips and cocoa powder. It was delicious! Please post more quick sauce and topping ideas. Often, they’re all I have the time and energy for on weekday mornings. I’ll make plain overnight oats or a packet of instant oatmeal, and then add a topping in the morning.
