If you're asking yourself, "What can I do with chestnuts?" This recipe might be perfect for you. After coming from the Chestnut Farm I spoke about in my last blog post, I had a lot of chestnuts and I needed something to do with them.
I played around and came up with this eggless Chestnana (chestnut + Bananas). It came out pretty good. It isn't too sweet so you don't feel guilty eating it for breakfast, but sweet enough where it fulfills that sweet tooth craving when it hits.
