Baked Banana With Cinnamon & Honey (Low Fat / Healthy)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Wendy-Bob

I love banana's but can't stand to eat them when they're over-ripe so I always end up binning some. In a bid to cut down on wastage I now eat this delicious baked (or you could BBQ it) banana combo for my breakfast. I like it so much now that it's gone from being a recipe I use to get rid of my over-ripe banana's to being my standard week-day breakfast! It's so versatile... great on it's own, over porridge or weetabix, on toast, with yogurt, or over ice cream... Mmmmmmm!

This was wonderful. I had it for breakfast and plan on adding it to my oatmeal next time. I too baked it at 400F for 15 minutes and it was perfect. My children loved helping out in making it also. Thanks for sharing.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200c (or get your BBQ nice and ready if you're BBQing).
  2. Either slice the banana up into bite-sized pieces or cut it in half lengthways if you're looking for a smarter presentation or are having an ice cream banana split.
  3. Place the banana on an over-sized square of tin foil and sprinkle with cinnamon (to taste).
  4. Drizzle 2tsp of honey evenly over the banana and gather up the corners of the foil to create a little banana parcel.
  5. Place the parcel in the oven (or on the barbie) and bake for approximately 15mins.
  6. NB. Baking time depends on how you prefer your bananas - the more you bake, the more soft and gooey they get and the more the honey caramelises onto them. Personally I don't like mine too over-baked as I prefer the banana to still be a bit hard and the honey to be liquid.
