This may be my new favorite snack.

I found the recipe on Eating Well but kept it a bit on the healthier side so I could have it daily.

What I really mean is that I left out the rum. I know, where is the fun in that?

I must have lost my mind.

I get excited about this snack because it is one that Mr. How Sweet won’t steal.

He isn’t really into bananas. I think he’s an alien.


He also isn’t into Greek yogurt. He only likes yogurt that tastes like fake strawberry ice cream. Gag me with a spoon.

He must not ever pay attention when I speak because if he did, he would know how much protein is in Greek yogurt, and we all know he’d be all over that.


Roasted Bananas with Chocolate Yogurt Cream

adapted from Eating Well

Serves 2

2 bananas, cup in half, then sliced lengthwise

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 cup greek yogurt

1/2 tablespoon honey

1 teaspoon cocoa powder

Preheat oven to 400.

Add bananas to a small baking dish, top with brown sugar and cinnamon and roast until golden brown, about 15-20 minutes. While bananas are roasting, combine yogurt, cocoa and honey and mix until smooth.

Remove bananas and let cool about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate and top with yogurt.



I’m thinking I want to try the roasted bananas over ice cream. Or even oatmeal. Or in a sandwich.

And I could add some bacon too. Elvis would be proud.

    I’ve never tried roasted banana’s. I’m not sure I would like the consistency, because I get very weird about bananas. No brown spots, thank you! Maybe I’ll have to try though, because this looks delish!

    I adore bananas , and this seems like an awesome combo!
    Roasted fruit is great, specially paired with some cold yogurt or ice cream

    When I lived in Brazil, my host mom would put bananas in the oven with the peels STILL ON! It amazed me. They would turn all black on the peel and look disgusting, but you open them up to this perfectly roast banana. Of course we then drowned them in sugar, cinnamon and chocolate chip ice cream :-)

    Yum.

    These look sooo easy! And good! Honestly, I never roast bananas. I freeze, flambe, blend, dehydrate, foster/ignite them, use in recipes, but never just roast. I am totally doing this!! The crazy thing is that fresh bananas are icky to me! weird, i know.

    Omg my night. Wow. Crazy but worked out.

    I think is this one of those I would have to try… even though I love bananas and chocolate, I’m not sure I can wrap my brain around this! BUT! I tend to lean towards trusting anything you make… :)

    Oh wow! that sounds somewhat like bananas foster, the best dessert EVER! Ill need to try this although I cant imagine it standing up to bananas foster. BTW can you make a healthier version of bananas foster? Cause I would LOVE that. love your site and tried the garlic hummus and it was amazing!
