Secret Recipe Club: Breakfast Banana Split

This is my second month participating in the Secret Recipe Club! It is so much fun to have a chance to get to know another blogger's site and look through their recipes and figure out which one looks just right for my family (and hope another blogger isn't having too hard of a time finding something they will enjoy here!) This month I had Natural Noshing and had a really good time browsing her fabulous recipe index! I was really drawn to the shrimp fried rice recipe, but being pregnant and hungry all the time, and always looking for quick and healthy snacks or breakfasts I ended up deciding this one was the one for me!

This was super pretty and such a delicious and tasty treat!! I love cottage cheese with fruit and this was a great way to try some different fruit flavors out with the cottage cheese. A protein packed breakfast that was very satisfying! I used a little bit of blackberry jam, some strawberry jam, and some diced canned tangerines for the middle. Yumm!

Breakfast Banana Split from Natural Noshing

1 banana, cut in half lengthwise
1/2 cup to 2/3 cup cottage cheese (I used lowfat but any will do)
1 -2 Tbsp all-fruit preserves (I used blackberry and strawberry)
1-2 TBS diced fruit (such as pineapple, strawberries, or tangerines)
 1 tsp ground flaxseed (optional)
1 tsp chia seed (optional)
1 – 2 Tbsp chopped walnuts (or any other preferred nut)

  1. Place banana halves in serving dish or bowl. Add scoops of cottage cheese on top of banana. Drizzle with fruit preserves and top with fruit, nuts, and seeds as desired!
Have fun with this one - make it your own!! Use yogurt, add berries, etc.
