feel free to get creative here!
1. Melt the Earth Balance in a hot skillet. Add in the banana. Allow to cook until blackened and sides become crispy while insides become soft and sticky.
2. During the saute, add in any spices you’d like. Savor spices like pepper, chili and chipotle are nice. Nutritional yeast brings out a cheesy flavor. Coconut flakes even work here!
3. Add in the cheddar Daiya and allow to melt into the banana. Remove from heat when cheese is melted.
4. Top crackers with the mixture and garnish with a fresh banana slice on top. serve warm.
