This is my take on bananas foster, using real food. Sweet, warm bananas caramelized in butter and maple syrup. Top it with whipped cream or whipped coconut cream and it’s sure to please just about everyone.
There is something wonderful about lightly cooking bananas. It brings out the flavor and paired with crunchy walnuts, it’s a match made in heaven. The addition of the warm cinnamon spice elevates the flavor to a whole new level. If you’re feeling adventurous, try adding some ground ginger to it. It’s DIVINE!
This recipe is incredibly simple to make and is perfect for those evenings when you need a quick dessert at the last minute. I have to say that this remains one of my all-time favorite desserts. For being such a quick and easy recipe, there is something gourmet about it. And at the same time, it is a comfort food for me.
I want to give a shout out to my friend Suzanne from Strands of My Life for shooting the photo for this recipe!

Learn How to Make Perfect Ice Cream (and Other Frozen Treats) at Home
Ice cream is the quintessential dessert (and, ahem, it would probably go pretty darn great with this recipe!). I mean, I can’t think of a single person that I’ve ever met who doesn’t like ice cream. While not everyone is as passionate about the cold, creamy, sweet concoction as I am, I am betting that if you’re reading this, you probably enjoy a frozen treat of some sort every now and then.
If so, then I have the PERFECT resource for you today.
I am crazy for ice cream, but I find that there are very few commercial ice creams that I can eat. I can’t do dairy, so that scratches a good 75% of them off the list. And the non-dairy options either taste funny, have too much sugar, or have weird gums and additives that my poor gut just doesn’t tolerate.
