To quote a friend: I don’t eat desserts. Except when I do.

Accurate. Perhaps too accurate.

In my never-eat-dessert-unless-it’s-my-birthday (which ps: is today) world, I’ve been eating these for “dessert” every night all week. The only ingredients are banana, honey, olive oil, and cinnamon. All health beneficial and crispy-yummy. They’re amazing by themselves, or give a nice upgrade sprinkled over french toast.

Yummy! Thanks for the great how-to photos, they were very helpful.
I added my raw organic honey and walnuts to the bananas at the end of their sauté time. The honey caramelized after I removed the bananas from the pan. For my college son and a friend, I put this over vanilla ice cream. It was a delicious dessert ~ decadent I would say. And they gave it RAVE reviews!
I am pinning this to my ‘I did that’ board on Pinterest now.

Omg! These were amazing! I used olive oil cooking spray (0 cal) and an under ripened banana (the top was still green and whole banana was firm) that was cut about 1/2 an inch per slice and they turned out firm and crisp on the outside and melted in your mouth! Thank you so much!

This was okay…my toddler loved it, but I expected the bananas to get crispy. They were just soft instead. I think I would have liked it if they were crispy instead of soft.

This was my issue as well but I think it’s because the bananas were too ripe. I’m going to try it again with less ripe bananas

This looks so sinfully delicious. But, it is just bananas! Therefore, a healthier sinful dessert, right? Haha.

Hello,

My name is Amanda, and I’m working on a “Best Of Paleo”
recipe project.

I’m putting together some of the best paleo recipes on the
web, and yours just looks AWESOME. I’d love to feature some of them.

The purpose of this book is so that paleo eaters can learn
new recipes and find new paleo bloggers to follow.

There’s no cost to you or anything. We’ll just post your
recipe with the picture, along with your name and blog
(unless you prefer to be anonymous).

Would you like to be featured? :)

Amanda

Thanks for sharing !!!

I was hungrily watching Food Network and my thoughts were drifting to the ripening bananas on the counter. After a particularly impressive display of pan-searing, I decided to Google the two and voilà, your page popped up!

I have to say, this recipe is absolutely delicious. My bananas were also a gooey, overripe mess, but I just layered it in a short glass with whipped cream parfait-style and sprinkled the cinnamon on top. FREAKING DELICIOUS. I will be making it again soon. :)

(Also, I used mesquite honey since that’s what was in the cupboard. It was good.)

I’m not sure what happened to mine, but it was a gooey, sticky mess. The bananas fell apart and were just mush. It tasted good, but I can’t serve it like this to my Mother In Law! Any suggestions?

Thank you!

Don’t think vegetable oil is paleo friendly. Coconut oil and bananas sounds amazing

I find that veggie oil is really good for frying vegetables only !!! Fruits and nuts go great with olive and coconut oil they have a higher heat ability.
