BY : PUBLISHED : July 28th, 2017 UPDATED: September 29th, 2022

This is one of the recipes from the newest Plant-Based on a Budget Meal Plan (week 3)! It was the brainchild of Michelle Cehn from World of Vegan, and I absolutely love it. You can change it up with peanut butter and jelly, mashed banana topped with berries, and more!
