Baked Bananas, Cinnamon, Honey and Yogurt!

Good Morning Lovelies!

We are half way through September, and Fall is in the air! I have to say, Fall is my favorite time of year.  You could either wear a jacket and boots, or shorts and sandals.  And you get to go apple picking and pumpkin picking!  And there’s pumpkin spice lattes! Ugh Stop!  (I’m also bias, because I was born in the Fall.)

That being said, this week’s recipe has a good balance for both the hot and cool weather we may experience: Baked Bananas with Cinnamon, Honey and Greek Yogurt!

Ingredients:

2 Bananas- sliced

Cinnamon – to taste

Honey – to taste

4 Tbsp. Greek yogurt (2 Tbsp. per serving)

I know, I know, there aren’t exact measurements, but everyone’s taste buds are unique.  One  person’s palate may not like as much cinnamon, but a lot of honey, whereas another’s might be the reverse.

Keeping that in mind, slice the bananas to your desired thickness.  I ended up having a variety of thicknesses for mine.  Then sprinkle some cinnamon over all of the slices of banana and then finally finish by drizzling honey over all of the bananas.

Just a Little Tip (JLT):  You do not need to grease the aluminum pan before putting your bananas down.  They will remove fine with a spatula after baking..

Next, place the bananas in a 350F oven for 10 minutes, or until the banana slices are tender.  They should turn a deeper hue than before you baked them, like so.

By this time, your home should have this beautiful bananas foster-esque aroma that will have your introverted teenager coming out of their room to investigate.

Grab a bowl, scoop the Greek yogurt into the bottom and top with the bananas.  To finish the dish, drizzle with a little additional honey.

Alternatively, if you would like to live a bit on the wild side, you can substitute the Greek yogurt for actual vanilla bean ice cream. Delish!
