Fried Honey Banana

Looking for a treat that’s just for one? Big bulk recipes are convenient if you’re feeding a family, but for a solitary cook, two dozen cookies is just too much! All those extras often just end up in the trash can – or worse, they hang around in the fridge calling your name until you end up eating a lot more honey and almond flour than you really wanted to.

BananasHere’s a solution to that particular problem: a quick treat sized perfectly for a single person, and without the prep and cleanup of a whole big recipe. Banana slices fried in coconut oil are crispy and caramel-sweet on the outside but warm and soft in the middle. Add a drizzle of warm honey on top, and it’s officially a party. Without any nuts or egg ingredients, the recipe is autoimmune- and allergy-friendly. And it only takes a few minutes, so dessert is done almost as soon as you decide you want some!

Coconut oil is the best choice to use here, because it’s very saturated and heat-resistant. Butter or ghee would also be good, or if you like the taste of red palm oil, you could also use that. Love it so much you want to share with a friend? No problem: you can just as easily double or triple the recipe to feed as many people as you like. Fry up a quick batch from you to you, or get a whole bunch of bananas and treat all your friends; you’ll be amazed at how delicious such a simple recipe can taste.
