  1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat, and let the butter heat until fragrant and very lightly brown. Add the bananas and stir constantly until the banana pieces sizzle and begin to caramelize, about 5 minutes. Turn down the heat to medium-low, sprinkle with maple sugar, and stir gently until the sugar melts. Sprinkle with cinnamon and serve.


  • Cook's Notes
  • Use almost black ripe bananas; sweeten with maple sugar, brown sugar, or organic sugar. It is great with vanilla ice cream!

I only made it for one but I can see it being good for ice cream or pancakes but, I didn't like it by itself, but it is quick and easy

I used 3 bananas and 1/3 cup brown sugar. It was DELICIOUS on our waffles this morning! I think with a touch of rum, it would be yummy on ice cream for adults - sort of a bananas foster type t...
