Is it just me or do you ever just need something sweet? Like after every meal? I have a huge sweet tooth. It’s like a big buck tooth right in the front of my mouth. I tried to see a dentist about it, but they didn’t take my insurance. Oh well.

I discovered these bananas a while ago. They are awesome! Sweet, and probably as healthy as dessert can realistically be (for me.) I’m training for a big, big race and I’m trying to shun unhealthy foods as much as I can. These honey glazed bananas have been a life saver. They satisfy the sweet tooth and they aren’t too full of bad stuff.

They form a nice crispy crust and the center is creamy and satisfying. The honey gives is just a little extra sweetness and ground cinnamon gives it a little pizzazz.

You want to start with bananas that are still very firm. A little green around the gills, so to speak. If you bananas are already ripe, then they will turn to mush and you won’t be able to get them off the pan easily.

Slice the bananas into 3/4″ slices.

Heat 1- 1 1/2 tablespoon(s) coconut oil (just enough to cover the bottom of the pan) in a non-stick type pan on medium-high heat.

Let it get nice a hot before adding the bananas. (You can’t really tell that the oil is sizzling here.) If you put the bananas in before the oil is really hot, they are more likely to stick to the pan.

Be patient, but also watch the bananas carefully. Gently turn them over once they form a nice golden crust. This probably takes 1-2 minutes. Make sure you don’t let the crust stay behind on the pan when you flip them. Sometimes that crust will want to stick to the pan, but it’s the best part, so don’t let it stay behind.

Let the other side get nice and crispy.

Turn the heat to low and drizzle 2 teaspoons (or more) honey over the bananas. Let it bubble up and around the bananas. Once it has thickened and bubbled, remove from heat.  honey glazed bananas

Sprinkle them with a little cinnamon if you want. And maybe add some ice cream? -Wait, no, that defeats the whole “healthy” thing. Dang!
