Cinnamon Bananas Recipe

The next time you’re jonesing for a sweet, healthy treat, try this easy Cinnamon Bananas recipe. It’s made with sweet bananas, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a touch of honey. A lower-calorie riff on bananas flambe — hold the alcohol, butter, and several tablespoons of sugar — this version enhances the already-sweet nature of ripe bananas through caramelization.
Cinnamon Bananas Recipe

Caramelizing draws out the sugars in a food; the lightly sweet crust on the bananas and a few teaspoons of raw honey are all you need.

In addition to being a simple and healthy dessert or snack, this recipe is also a tasty way to get rid of those squishy, slightly overripe bananas sitting on your kitchen counter!

Pro tip: Save this treat for the older kids; it’s not recommended to feed raw honey to babies, due to the (rare) risk of botulism poisoning.
