Bananas “Faux” Foster

I have a feeling that you will go bananas over my sauteed bananas with sugar and cinnamon. I happen to love bananas by themselves, in sandwiches with almond butter, in smoothies, dipped in chocolate, dried with honey, you name it, chances are I’m loving it!

Well, I wanted to try something different, so I heated up about a tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil, (coconut oil works really well too) in a sautee pan, added thick slices of a whole banana, and let them cook just until they softened. I plated the now hot banana slices and sprinkled them with sucanat and cinnamon. (Sucanat is pure, dried cane juice and contains less sucrose than white, refined sugar).

I have to say I flipped, it tastes like bananas foster without the rum and butter! It also reminded me of banana cream pie without the cream. I know it sounds like a stretch, but you should give it a try. My very simple recipe takes just a few minutes and delivers a delicious and good-for-you treat. The kids will love it!

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive or coconut oil
1 large banana, sliced in 1-inch pieces
Sucanat or raw sugar
Cinnamon

In a medium size sautee pan, heat up the olive oil over medium heat, 1-2 minutes. Add banana slices and turn after a minute or so. When just softened, remove from pan and sprinkle sugar and cinnamon on top. Eat and enjoy immediately. (You can also use a plantain instead of a banana, they’re dryer and chewier but just as delicious).
