Granana (noun): a sliced banana smothered with almond butter, sprinkled with granola and drizzled with raw honey.
I first discovered Grananas back in 2012 when I was visiting my boyfriend's family in Scranton, PA. They took me to one of their favorite breakfast spots, Mansours Market. Mansours is an adorable hometown, casual dining spot famous for their mean sandwich game and of course, their Granana.
Why I'm obsessed:
+ Bananas are a great source of potassium, fiber, magnesium and vitamin C.
+ Almond butter is a wonderful source of healthy fats, fiber, protein, calcium and magnesium.
+ Raw honey is a delicious source of antioxidants, phytonutrients and digestive enzymes.
+ Granola... just tastes good ;)
Okay, so granola is the only ingredient I couldn't really justify giving health benefits to, but you get the picture...
