Takeover Tuesday – Cinnamon Crusted Bananas


Hi guys! This is Jasmine taking over for takeover Tuesday.  I would like to thank the Purple Panda for this opportunity, but without further ado, let’s get into the post!  Okay, First things first: I try to be healthy… the keyword in that sentence being try.  Sometimes I kinda break the rules of being healthy when I see all those cupcakes and sugar.  Stop laughing at me!  I also like to cook/bake as much as I can.  Knowing what is in your food can help you stay healthier instead of eating that whole cake and then looking at the nutrition facts… Oops.

So this post is going to be all about an amazing recipe that I found and altered to be a healthy dessert.  It’s these amazing pan fried cinnamon bananas.  There’s no sugar added because the bananas we will be using are ripe and very sweet already.  Also, who can go wrong with cinnamon?  This recipe is insanely easy…I was surprised how easy it was because diys are ummm, let’s go with slightly difficult.  This is a quick treat that you can do in ten minutes tops.


All you need are some ripe bananas (however many you want), a medium sized sauce pan, Splenda(optional) and cinnamon.


Easy, right?  So let’s get into it!  So the first thing you want to do is have bananas.  You got them?  Great.  Now, slice them into around 1/4-1/2 slices depending on your taste.  It doesn’t really matter as long as your slices aren’t too thin, otherwise they will stick to the pan and become mush.


I make mine with straight cinnamon but you can use some Splenda or sugar with it if you really wnt to.  I do it every now and then and it makes it even better.  Next, set the stove to medium heat and wait a minute for the pan to warm up.  Put the bananas in the pan.  And just to warn you this is going to smell really good.


Quickly, before the bananas get too mushy sprinkle cinnamon or your cinnamon sugar mix onto the bananas.  Add to taste.


Once you do that, flip the bananas with a spatula (this is where you can’t have them be too mushy).


Add the cinnamon over that side and you’re good!


You can even flip them again to get them extra delicious.  Put them onto a plate and enjoy! Bon Appétit!

  1. First of all, thank you for the comment on my post, and as for your question, I honestly haven’t tried it! I think the pan, although it may take longer will taste better in the long run

  2. Can I put the bananas in a microwave?
    And great post, by the way!
