It’s Sabroso Saturday (Translation: Tasty Saturday)! The day when we share recipes that have helped us stretch our budget, our imagination and our taste buds, without sacrificing our health!
With the holidays right around the corner and barely any time to cook, my sons have been taking advantage of my George Foreman Grill by helping to make quick meals and desserts.
My teen first saw a similar recipe on the food channel. He said it was created with green plantains. I did a search and didn’t find the recipe he saw on TV but I found the Grilled Bananas dessert recipe below on the George Foreman Recipes website that looked rather similar to what he was trying to create. After the holidays, I plan to make it with green plantains. I’m sure the combination of the sweet brown sugar with the plantains will tantalize my taste buds even more!
Till I do, we’ve used the below recipe which is easy enough that my teen can make it for himself and his little brother when they want something sweet. The original recipe called for walnuts but we used granola instead. Although we didn’t, you could also substitute the sugar with a sugar sweetener.
- 2 ripe bananas peeled
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- 2 Tbsp granola
Cut the bananas in half widthwise & in half lengthwise. Combine the sugar, cinnamon & walnuts in a small bowl. Place the bananas on a pre heated grill horizontally & spoon the cinnamon-walnuts over each slice. Grill for 3-4 minutes, or until the bananas are warm & the cinnamon & granola are slightly glazed.
