This healthier take on a banana split provides gut-nourishing probiotics, 24 grams of protein and 9 grams of fiber. Soaked nuts and seeds replace granola for a little crunch (plus they’re easier to digest and more nutritious than raw nuts), ground flaxseed adds a boost of omega-3 fats, and a sprinkle of cinnamon helps to keep blood sugar balanced.

Protein-Packed Breakfast Banana Split

  1. In small bowl, combine almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds. Cover with filtered water and stir in 1/4 teaspoon unrefined salt. Cover and let mixture soak on the counter overnight. (Note: This makes them easier to digest and unlocks more nutrients). In separate small bowl, soak goji berries in a small amount of filtered water overnight in the refrigerator.

  2. In the morning, peel and slice a banana in half lengthwise. Place on a plate.

  3. In small bowl, mix yogurt and collagen powder. Spoon mixture on top of banana.

  4. Drain the nut and seed mixture and goji berries. Sprinkle on top of yogurt.

  5. Sprinkle on ¼ teaspoon cinnamon (or more), ground flaxseed and honey, if desired.
