Pan Fried Cinnamon Bananas

We have bananas on hand most of the time as treats for our rabbits. They would eat every banana in sight if we let them, but too much sugar isn’t good for them. We usually end up eating or throwing away 1-2 of the bunch, so finding a recipe designed for using up overripe bananas was just made for our household!

Quick and easy recipe for overripe bananas, perfect for a special breakfast or an afternoon snack!

The Ingredients

I didn’t have to shop for any of the ingredients for this dessert. The only small change I made was using canola oil spray instead of olive oil spray. I already had the former on hand, and I didn’t foresee the change making a difference in the taste.

The Process

I spent 7 minutes on this recipe from start to finish (3 minutes to prep and 4 to cook). Just slightly more than the 5 minutes listed. The entire process was extremely easy.

Heating the overripe bananas softened them quickly, and they only needed 2 minutes on each side to warm through. The steam produced mixed with the sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg and created a delicious syrup.

I ended up with a more syrupy dessert than pictured, but it tasted terrific. The slightly spicy taste of the cinnamon and nutmeg were an excellent contrast to the sweetness of the bananas and sugar. I loved that there are only 4 ingredients and that I had everything on hand. Using 2 bananas made a small, light dessert for my husband and me. I will be making this every time I have extra bananas on hand.
