I have a major sweet tooth, but I don’t like to keep a lot of treats around my apartment
due to my poor impulse control because I like to eat healthy. But sometimes, I just have to have something sweet now. Do you know what I mean?
This recipe for caramelized bananas is the perfect way to conquer any sugar craving. It’s quick, easy, and I usually have all of the ingredients on hand. Plus, it’s got that whole salty-sweet thing going on – yum!
Salted Caramelized Bananas with Ice Cream
- 3 Tbsp. butter
- 2 bananas, peeled and sliced
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- Vanilla ice cream
- Coarse sea salt
Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add bananas and brown sugar. Cook, stirring occasionally, until butter and sugar are well combined and a sauce has formed. The bananas should have softened slightly and will be coated with caramel.
Serve bananas over ice cream and top with a pinch of salt. Eat quickly before the ice cream melts!
Notes: this recipe is easily scaled up or down, so make it for yourself or a crowd. I like to use Maldon Sea Salt Flakes, however you can use any coarse salt you like – just don’t use table salt.
