Nothing says decadent like the combination of banana, peanut butter and chocolate. In this recipe, cocoa powder provides that chocolate flavor without the added fat and sugar. Instead, it adds anti-inflammatory properties and fiber. Powdered peanut butter provides the flavor of peanut butter but at a fraction of the calories and fat.
