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

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

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!

ingredients

directions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 200c (or get your BBQ nice and ready if you're BBQing).
  • 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.
  • Place the banana on an over-sized square of tin foil and sprinkle with cinnamon (to taste).
  • Drizzle 2tsp of honey evenly over the banana and gather up the corners of the foil to create a little banana parcel.
  • Place the parcel in the oven (or on the barbie) and bake for approximately 15mins.
  • 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.

    When you say gather up the corners to make a little packet, you should make it clear that the packets should not be completely closed. I had nothing but a wet mess. Absolutely no carmelization! Bananas thrown into trash once again only nastier this time. I am assuming that was my mistake - sealing the "packet"?

    My wife and I are on a eating health kick (not a diet) and needed a little sweet kicker. This was perfect split a banana with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream. We baked for 10 minutes we wouldn't want to go much more as the banana got mushy enough.

    I might just have to try this recipe. Bananas cooked any way is yummy. We mash them up and add to pancake batter. I've even mashed them up and put into plastic container bringing it to a Waffle restaurant and smearing on my waffle. I'm thinking about baking over ripe bananas by themselves. I have trouble finding over ripe or even ripe bananas in the stores. I do buy them still unripe and have them sit, but I get anxious to eat one of my favorite fruits, fattening but healthy.
