Caramelised Banana & Pecan

Do you ever have those days that you REALLY want a dessert that’s warm and gooey and sticky. A dessert that is pure comfort food. A dessert that is worth not eating dinner for. A dessert that the whole family likes. But then you realise you have no time, and very limited ingredients in the house.

Well I found one to ticks all the boxes. Well made it up as I went along actually. But it was good! Great for those days when you have some bananas that need using up too!

This fed 4 of us (but 2 were little)


3 bananas cut diagonally into 1 inch thick strips

2 tsp Coconut oil

Couple of handfuls pecan halves

Dollop of double cream, whipped

Butterscotch or toffee sauce (I used the caramel that I put on top of my brownies, but any similar sauce will do the trick)

Pinch sea salt

How to make it amazing:

Heat the coconut oil in a frying pan over a med-high heat. Once it’s hot add the banana slices. When they are sizzling and browning then carefully turn them over and give the pan a little shake. Fry until soft and gooey and brown on this side too. You may have to do this is 2 batches depending on the size of your pan. Put the banana onto serving plates and add the pecans to the pan and give them a toss around in the remaining coconut, until they are just starting to toast. Serve with the banana, a dollop of cream as then Drizzle some toffee/caramel sauce over the top. Sprinkle a little sea salt on the top. Serve immediately while warm and Yummy!
