Banana-Coconut Breakfast Pudding

This recipe is based on Chocolate-Covered Katie’s Banana Bread in a Bowl recipe. Although her recipe is perfectly delectable, I decided to put my own twist on it using my favorite cereal and a few other tasty ingredients.

  1. Caroline, I’m dying here! I am trying to resist buying coconut because I just eat it up so fast (by putting it on EVERYTHING), but this recipe is making that pretty darn difficult!
    But anyway. This sounds absolutely delicious. I would do almonds or almond butter for the nuts, because banana + coconut + almond = flava HEAVEN.

  2. You don’t add any water or milk to this? I bet coconut milk would be amazing!

  14. Mmm. I love banana and coconut together. Looks so delicious!
    And yes, I feel the same way about Hungry Girl. I was a little turned off by some of the recipes that had so many artificial ingredients. But I will always be indebted to her for re-introducing Shirataki noodles to me! (I grew up with them, but eat them so much — I can only eat them with Asian flavors — doesn’t seem “right” to eat them with cheese!)
