One of my favorite memories from childhood is waking up from a slumber party and smelling that sweet cinnamon scent drifting into my nose. I knew when I walked downstairs there would be a mound of gooey goodness also known as monkey bread waiting for my friend(s) and me. As I’ve grown older and more health conscious, my taste buds have changed. What once tasted amazing, now is a bit too strong on the sugar for me. So a few weeks ago as I prepared to have my small group over for a brunch I decided it was time to make one of my favorite dishes healthier. I can’t say it is the absolute best thing for you to eat in the morning, but I can say it is loads better than the original recipe I enjoyed as a child.
- 2 packages of premade whole wheat pizza dough (I used Trader Joe’s)
- 3 small granny smith apple’s peeled, cored, and diced
- 3 overly ripe bananas
