- 1/2 cup toasted hazelnuts for topping
- Toast hazelnuts in a small sauce pan over medium heat for approximately five minutes,set aside and let cool.

- Pour pudding into small serving dishes and top with hazelnuts.
First, I started by toasting a 1/2 cup of hazelnuts in a small sauce pan over medium heat for approximately five minutes. Once the hazelnuts are toasted, set aside and let cool. I like adding toasted hazelnuts on top of the pudding because they add a nice crunch to break up the creaminess of the pudding. They also add a nice smoky earthy flavor. You really can’t go wrong.
Next, combine bananas, cocoa powder, agave nectar, cinnamon and vanilla into a food processor. Blend until smooth and creamy. You may need to stop and scrape the sides of bowl a few times to make sure all the ingredients are incorporated. The consistency should be super smooth. I personally don’t like any lumps of banana in my pudding, but if that’s your thing go for it.
This pudding recipe should make enough to fill two small ramekins or approximately two cups. Serve right away or place in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
Once you have the pudding consistency to your liking, it’s time to serve it up. I like putting the healthy banana chocolate pudding into small white ramekins. I dust the top of the pudding with cocoa powder, then top it with the toasted hazelnuts and garnish with mint. It looks fancy with minimal effort. Not only is this pudding healthy and delicious, it is beautiful too. Plus, it takes less than 10 minutes to make this dessert. This is a winning dessert that will sure to impress your guests while keeping your waistline in check.
