Grilled peaches, grilled plums, grilled watermelon, grilled pineapple – all pretty common. Grilled bananas??? Why not!
Grilled bananas are delicious and great for breakfast on cereal, granola, pancakes or waffles. They also make a great dessert over ice cream! Check out my ice cream cookbook here!
The key to success is to use underripe bananas. A ripe banana is soft, softens more on the grill and gets mushy. Taste a sliver of the banana. Want it sweeter? Brush with a little honey or agave before grilling.
There is no “recipe” for this. Use as many bananas as you like, brush lightly with a sweetener, if needed. Place on a hot grill and cook a minute, turn and cook a minute, turn and cook a minute, turn and cook a minute. Sprinkle with cinnamon and serve.
Sprinkle immediately with cinnamon to release the essential oils and aroma.
