Weight Loss Recipes Banana Fosters Premier Protein Pudding Jars

This post is sponsored by Premier Protein®. I’m excited to share this new recipe featuring Premier Protein Shakes and 100% Whey Protein Powder with you.

In the early 1950′s, New Orleans was the major port of entry for bananas imported from Central and South America. The owner of Brennan’s Restaurant, challenged his chef to include bananas on the menu. He famously created the iconic New Orleans dessert: Bananas Foster, a combo of bananas, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, ice cream and some booze. It is delicious but not the most weight loss surgery friendly food item, that’s for sure. I decided that I would create a dessert for us that has all the yummy flavors of the traditional decadent dessert but something that wouldn’t do damage to our weight, health or fitness goals.

I’m heading to New Orleans next month for #YWM2017 this year’s Your Weight Matters National Convention, a 3-day educational event where the countries leading experts on weight, weight loss, nutrition, wellness topics like sleep, stress and emotional health will be sharing their latest research. It’s going to be an amazing weekend. Advanced registration continues through July 28th but you can register at the door so if you need great education and inspiration on your weight loss journey… come to New Orleans next month. Find all the info about the event at www.YWMConvention.com and be sure to sign up for e-alerts to hear all the 411 about this event and the location (when announced) of next year’s event!

Thanks to Premier Protein for creating their delicious Bananas & Cream Protein Shake it’s what inspired me to create this protein-packed recipe (30 grams of protein in each shake.) I also used Premier Protein 100% Whey Protein Powder in the Cinnamon Protein Granola that made the perfect base layer of my nod to New Orleans Banana Fosters Pudding Jars.

1 Tablespoon Butter

Mix all ingredients together. Squeeze together with your hands till clumps form. You need to use your hands for this one.

If your almond butter is on the loose side add a little more protein, if it’s on the drier side add a little more syrup till clumps form.  Place on a non-stick sprayed, foil lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Cool.

The 6 pudding jars use 1/2 of this batch of granola, store the remaining in an airtight container for several days. It’s delicious sprinkled on Greek yogurt, cottage or ricotta cheese, or put it in a baggie and it makes a great airplane snack! I’ll have a baggie in my carry-on when I head to New Orleans!

Shelly’s Bananas Foster Topping

1 Banana, sliced
1 Tablespoon (or less) Butter
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Syrup (or Sweetener of your choice)
1 Tablespoon Walnuts, chopped
a couple of drops of Rum extract
a dash of Cinnamon

Saute first three ingredients till bananas are softened and slightly golden.
