If you are searching for an easy and tasty dessert; look no further! While Sarah was away last week I wanted to fix a special treat for the boys and so I came up with Grilled Bananas! The grill is my domain, it’s where I feel the most comfortable cooking and I realized I could easily incorporate my favorite cooking tool into a “dad’s dessert station.”
In the Paleo world many folks are stumped as to what they can make for dessert without the introduction of sugars or artificial sweeteners. The reality is; fruit provides enough natural sweetness and there is no need to look any further. This particular recipe is about as easy as it comes and is definitely kid approved. You need about 15 minutes of your time and a whole 2 ingredients (banana’s and cinammon), well one other important tool is needed, the grill!
I hope you all enjoy this easy yet satisfying recipe.
note: You could take this a step further and whip up some heavy cream and finely chop some walnuts or almonds to create a Banana split of sorts.
2 bananas, quartered LEAVE PEELS ON
Coconut oil (if desired)
Brush the open side of the banana with coconut oil if desired then sprinkle on cinnamon to taste. Grill open side down (peel up) for 2-4 minutes, flip and grill peel down for another 2-4 minutes or until the peel starts to separate from the fruit. Remove from the grill and serve. It’s fun to eat it right out of the peel.
