This is a really easy way to get rid of those extra bananas that seem to linger. You can also use unripe bananas.


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Lay unpeeled banana on the oven rack and roast for 15 minutes.
  3. The skin will be a uniform black-brown and the inside will be soft.
  4. Using a sharp knife, slit the banana from end to end.
  5. Drizzle with honey and if desired, rum.
  6. Eat with a spoon.

Reviewed for ZWT3. Loved it! Had a banana that was on its way to the trash (not gone, but going). It was wonderful! I didn't use that much honey, and used a full teaspoon of rum -- it was enough. Very good!

This is a great way to get rid of bananas when they are just about to turn. I recommend using a lot of honey - but I do have a sweet tooth. I only made one change, I sprinkled them with a bit of cinnamon and sugar. Just make sure you eat them quickly – while they are still hot.
