Slow Cooker Honey Bananas

This is the perfect healthy dessert!

Need a healthy treat? These healthy slow cooker honey bananas should do the trick! Slow cooker recipes are a great option for dessert because they alleviate the need to spend hours baking in the oven. During the hot summer months, you can enjoy a sweet, fresh dessert without heating the entire kitchen up. And during the winter months, these gooey, sweet bananas taste cozy and delicious.

Dessert is always a challenge for people trying to eat healthy. Many options are loaded with saturated fat, refined sugar, and plenty of calories. Many dieters assume dessert is a no-no until they reach their goal weight, but eliminating all the foods they love only aggravates their sweet tooth more. Instead of cutting out all desserts, find healthy options that allow you to indulge without ruining your efforts. There are plenty of ways to turn everyday fruit into an indulgent treat without overdoing it with fat and calories.

Best of all, when you choose fruit for dessert, you boost your nutrition intake even more. There isn’t much good for you found in cookies, cakes, and candy, but when you incorporate fruit into your dessert, you get more vitamins and minerals into your diet. What could be better than enjoying a sweet treat AND improving your health?
