Banana Breakfast Sushi is something that I had been meaning to make for a long time now. I saw a photo on Pinterest a while back of what appeared to be slices of bananas covered in a nut butter of sorts topped with all kinds of goodies. It looked really fun, and so I put it on my never-ending “recipes to try for the blog” list.

So last weekend, when I was about to cover a banana in almond butter for breakfast, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to give Banana Breakfast Sushi a try. 🙂

Once I decided that I would be making this Banana Breakfast Sushi, I covered a banana in almond butter (about 1.5 Tbs worth), and then I was stumped…

What do I want to put on my breakfast sushi?! Everything?!

I’m always looking for ways to incorporate healthy ingredients like chia seeds, flax seeds, and goji berries into my life, but I wasn’t sure… should I go the chocolate chip and shredded coconut route? Or should I add matcha tea powder and raw fruit?

Hmmm…

And then I saw my bag of organic cocoa powder on the counter… Sold.

I sprinkled cocoa powder onto the layer of almond butter already on the banana. And then I added some ground chia seeds and ground flax seeds.

At this point I thought, ok maybe I’m done? But… I still wanted my sushi to have a topping. 🙂

I figured why not goji berries?

Perfection.

Once all the toppings were on top, I sliced up my banana and dug in.

I do kind of wish that I had chopsticks to make the eating process a bit cleaner, but it was all gone so quickly, that it didn’t quite matter.

I really loved this recipe… I mean, banana and almond butter are a match made in heaven. Especially with cocoa powder on top! But also, it felt really good to eat so many healthy, antioxidant-rich foods together in this way and call it breakfast.

I very much liked the flavor combination of the almond butter, cocoa powder, flax seeds, chia seeds, and goji berries.

But, there are a never ending amount of delicious combinations that you can choose to make your Banana Breakfast Sushi.

You could add maple syrup or honey…cashew or peanut butter… raw fruit or dried fruit… the possibilities are endless!
