Cottage Cheese and Banana with Peanut Butter
I love cottage cheese, am pretty obsessed with it, I think it makes a great breakfast or snack bowl. It also is the key secret ingredient to the best scrambled eggs, for real try my Healthy Cottage Cheese Scrambled Eggs. Or even dessert?! Have you checked out my post on How to Make Cottage Cheese Ice Cream.
Reasons I love cottage cheese:
- Packed with protein
- For a cheese it is low-calorie
- It is mild and creamy enough to take on whatever flavor profile you want
I have already shared one of my favorite cottage cheese combinations, my Apple Cinnamon Cottage Cheese Breakfast Bowls and today I am sharing another awesome combination.
But I warn you, you make it once and it will be on repeat, once you pair a delicious flavor with this breakfast that keeps you full you will never go back!
- 1/2 cup cottage cheese
- 1 banana
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon unsweetened shredded coconut
- Add cottage cheese to a bowl. Slice banana and add to the top of the cottage cheese.
- Drizzle peanut butter over the banana and sprinkle on the shredded cocunut.
Keep in mind the type of peanut butter you use will affect the nutrition, I advise to use 100% peanut butter.
Feel free to make this your own by adding more or different toppings. For added nutrition add items like hemp seeds, or to settle a dessert craving try adding some mini chocolate chips.
