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!

Easy Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Bananas Foster Recipe

Yield: 2
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 12 minutes

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.


  • 2 bananas, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon grade B maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons butter or ghee (use coconut oil)
  • 1/8 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (learn how to make your own vanilla here)
  • Real whipped cream or homemade ice cream (optional) (make your own dairy-free whipped cream here)


  1. In a small saucepan, combine the butter, maple syrup, and walnuts and heat over medium heat, stirring continuously.
  2. After the butter melts, you'll notice a caramel-type sauce forming. Once you get to that stage, add the vanilla and stir well.
  3. Add sliced bananas and cook until the bananas are soft, about 4-5 minutes.
  4. Serve immediately. Tastes wonderful as it is, or you can add some real whipped cream or homemade vanilla ice cream for a special treat.

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.

So, what’s a gal to do?

Master the art of making her own ice cream at home, that’s what!

And create I did and The Splendid Scoop and Other Frozen Treats eBook was born! This is one of my best-selling eBooks because I arm you with everything you need to make your own perfect ice cream (or other frozen treats) at home any time you want. 

And I do it all with real food ingredients, no refined sweeteners, not gums, not stabilizers. No junk here.

Oh, and I also have made the recipes allergen-friendly and even adaptable for stricter healing diets (like the AIP).

So, if you are ready to master the art of making your own ice cream at home, this is the perfect book for you. Don’t let another special occasion or hot day in the summer pass you by watching everyone else enjoying cold treats while you sit on the sideline due to your dietary restrictions.

No more!
