Dessert doesn’t have to erase a healthy meal! The bananas in this easier-than-pie dessert—all you need is a knife and a microwave—are a rich source of resistant starch, a type of healthy carbohydrate that helps you burn calories and eat less.

As an added bonus, the semisweet chocolate contains healthy fats to further rev your metabolism.
