5 Quick Banana Recipes

21 Apr

I’m staring at my brown, overripe bananas and I’m thinking what I should make with them. I love putting bananas in any baked good, bread, or during breakfast and lunch! Bananas are so rich in potassium, fiber, and vitamin C. Obviously, bananas are gluten-free and if you’re vegetarian/vegan, they can replace eggs in baking recipes.  Here are 5 quick banana recipes that I like to make.

3. Chocolate Dipped Bananas

  • In a microwave, melt your choice of chocolate chips or chocolate bar (white chocolate, milk and dark chocolate) for 30 second increments for 1-2 minutes. The chocolate should be smooth and liquidy. Burned chocolate (Chocolate can BURN) is thick and clumpy.
  • Dip half of the banana slice into melted chocolate OR drizzle the melted chocolate over sliced banana

4. Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

  • Slice 1 banana with a knife.
  • Spread peanut butter onto your choice of sliced bread (I like to eat it on Ezekial Bread-Gluten free)
  • Place the sliced bananas on top of the sliced bread with peanut butter. Smoosh the slices together and enjoy!

5. Gluten-Free Banana Cake
