    (Entire recipe: 200 calories, 1g fat, 160mg sodium, 52g carbs, 11g fiber, 19g sugars, 5g protein = 3 Points)

    These are so good, you may actually cry when you bite into one!

    1 large banana
    1/4 cup Fiber One cereal
    1/8 tsp. cinnamon
    pinch of salt
    2 tbsp. SPLENDA, Granular
    3 tbsp. Cool Whip Free
    1 tbsp. fat-free cream cheese; softened

    To create the cream cheese frosting, stir to combine cream cheese, Cool Whip and 1 tbsp. Splenda until smooth. Refrigerate. In a food processor or blender, combine Fiber One cereal, cinnamon, salt and 1 tbsp. Splenda, and blend until a breadcrumb-like consistency is achieved. Cut banana in half widthwise and then lengthwise (so you have 4 pieces). Spray banana pieces (both sides) with nonstick cooking spray. Roll banana pieces in the breadcrumb mixture, making sure to cover them entirely. Place bananas in a pan sprayed with nonstick spray, and cook at medium heat for approximately two and a half minutes per side, or until crispy. Serve with chilled cream cheese frosting.

    Combine pudding mix and soymilk in a bowl. Beat with wire whisk for 2 minutes or until well blended. Set aside.
