Baked Banana with Rum, Cinnamon and Mascarpone (Weight Watchers debunked)

This dessert was modified in order to cut on the amount of sugars the original recipe was calling for. It was mind blowing to me how much of sugar was in, apparently, one of the healthiest recipe. At least considered by many as that! Hope you like the beYOUtiful version of it now 😊

The original recipe was calling for ¼ cup brown sugar and vanilla fat-free frozen yogurt, which in the end was giving 64g of carbs per serving!!! WOW that is a lot!

  3. Add the bananas, cut side down, and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side.
