Easy & Healthy Baked Banana Recipe

baked banana

Growing up, one of my all-time favorite desserts was fried bananas. To this day, it’s my family’s go-to dessert order at any Thai, Indian or other South East Asian restaurant.

As much as I would love to eat fried bananas every day, I wanted something healthier that I could eat guilt-free while still satisfying my cravings.

Check out my recipe below for this healthy and sweet, low calorie, oven-baked banana recipe!


Cinnamon Honey Baked Banana Recipe

Total Time: 15-20 minutes

Prep: 5 minutes
Bake: 10-15 minutes

Number of servings: 3 servings (1 serving per banana)

Ingredients

  • Bananas – 3
  • Cinnamon – 1 tsp
  • Nutmeg – 1 tsp
  • Honey – 3 tsp

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Grab your banana and use a knife to make a long slit across the banana. Slice the banana in half, length ways, along the slit and separate the two halves.
  3. Leave the peel on the banana – this will help maintain the shape while the banana bakes.
  4. Sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg across the banana. I used about 1 tsp of each for all three bananas. Add a very small drizzle of honey to each banana.
  5. Repeat this process with all bananas, and place on a baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 10-15 min. at 400°F.
  7. Remove and drizzle a bit of honey on top (I used about 1 tsp per banana). Let the bananas cool for 5-10 minutes and then serve.
    Optional: Serve with a scoop of ice cream of any flavor! (Vanilla, Coconut and Butter Pecan are excellent choices!)
