My mom used to make this when I was a child. I thought it was strange that you would fry a banana! However, once I tried it, I knew why she liked it so much. To make this recipe vegan just swap the full fat plain yogurt for a vegan option. —Poppies and Papayas

What You'll Need
  • 1 tablespoon butter or coconut oil
  • 1 banana (not very ripe, with slightly green stem)
  • 1/8 cup quick oats
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • Fresh berries (raspberries, blueberries, or blackberries)
  • 1 tablespoon roasted walnuts, chopped
  1. In a small frying pan heat butter or oil over medium heat. Slice banana in half lengthwise and cut into quarters. With flat side facing down place the banana quarters into the pan. They should make a sizzling noise. Reduce heat to medium low and allow the bananas to brown. Flip onto other side.
  2. Toss the rolled oats around the bananas and sauté. Sprinkle everything with a pinch of salt.
  3. Drizzle maple syrup over the bananas and oats and sauté until bananas are browned and caramelized on the bottom as well.
  4. Place bananas onto plate and top with rolled oats. Garnish with a generous dollop of plain yogurt, fresh berries, and roasted walnuts.
