It was 9:00PM and I was starving. I had just returned home from the neighbors. We cracked open a bottle of wine, nibbled on some crackers and olives, and never had a full dinner. When we parted way they gave me a few bananas from their tree. Now, there is no where on Earth that I know of that grows bananas like we do in Hawaii, yet any ripe organic bananas will do for this recipe. Yes, this is what I had for dinner, and it was delicious and satisfying. It would be too filling for a dessert if following a meal, so its best on its own. Oh, and by the way, this is a completely legal meal from the Medical Medium. I know, the wine was not. So, I made up for it with this late dinner. Here is how simple it is:
2 ripe Bananas
1 tbsp Coconut oil
1 tbsp Maple syrup
Pinch of salt
Place the coconut oil and in skillet and warm it to medium high heat. While it is warming, slice the bananas in half from top to bottom.When the oil is hot place one side of the bananas in it and cook. The coconut oil should sizzle but not smoke.
Let them cook for about 3 to 5 min on each side (They will not get the golden brown color on them until you drizzle the maple syrup on top).
Once they are cooked on both sides, drizzle some of the maple syrup on them and turn them over. Turn them a couple times until the maple syrup begins to cook (try not to let it burn or smoke).
When they have that golden brown look, remove them from the heat and gentle drizzle a pinch of salt on top.
Accompany the meal with a fresh raw piece of fruit, or top with a dairy free yogurt of your choice.
