  • 2 large ripe bananas sliced in half and then slice again lengthwise (you will have 4 pieces)
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter
  • 1 tablespoon real maple syrup


  • Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat until melted. Add bananas and cook for 2 minutes, flip and cook 2 minutes more until they are golden brown.
  • Turn off the burner and add the maple syrup to the pan, it will bubble up and start to caramelize. Allow the bananas to cook in the syrup for 1 more minute off the heat.
  • Transfer to a plate and top with a scoop of homemade vanilla frozen yogurt, ice cream, Greek yogurt or your favorite toppings.
