Scour the dessert menu at any New Orleans restaurant, and you will find the amazing, mouth-watering Bananas Foster. Who can resist the warm, glazed dessert served over ice cream?

When going the skinny route, I changed up the dessert and use as a topping on my high fiber pancakes or waffles. While I use this delicious version as a topping on my high fiber pancakes, you can eat as a dessert or topping on Greek yogurt.
