I love the simplicity of this Baked Bananas recipe, which is a great way to use up ripe bananas. Topped with honey and cinnamon, the bananas smell amazing as they bake. They’re perfect for dessert, snack, or even breakfast. Delicious served with whipped cream, fro-yo, chopped nuts, or oatmeal. For more ways to use up ripe bananas, try Banana Foster Crepes, Banana Zucchini Cake, and Banana Nut Bread.

These bananas are so creamy and decadent – you’ll swear there’s butter in them! Besides the bananas, there are only two other ingredients: honey and cinnamon. The riper the better for this recipe! Top the bananas with cinnamon and honey, cover with foil, and bake for 10-15 minutes. It’s that easy! I like to serve them with a little Halo Top or whipped cream, but totally optional.

Since bananas are naturally sweet, they are an excellent choice for a healthy dessert. They are rich in potassium, which plays an important role in decreasing the risk of high blood pressure and stroke. Bananas are also high in vitamin B6 and C.

How to Serve Baked Bananas

There are so many different ways that you can eat these sweet baked bananas. Below are some of my favorites, but feel free to get creative! I’d love to know what you come up with – comment below!

  • Add a dash of nutmeg or cardamom to the bananas.

  1. Quick easy inexpensive family friendly dessert or snack. I used agave instead of honey and sprinkled Saigon cinnamon. My daughter had a few dark chocolate chips and mine a touch of light whip cream. Thanks so much. Definitely a keeper.

  2. This is delicious! We’ve been buying more fresh produce lately and I’ve been looking for ways to use bananas to replace desserts or too-sweet breakfast foods. The kids loved this! I serve it with whipped cream and a yogurt on the side. 

  3. Made this tonight and it was so delicious! I added Monkfruit blend sweetener instead of honey since that is what I had on hand. Also sprinkled some cinnamon on a few slices and nutmeg on others. I ended up liking the ones with cinnamon more. Used chopped pecans as the topping. Perfect dessert!

  4. This really reminds me of Girl Scouts.
    For your recipe, I added a sprinkle of mini chocolate chips and skipped the whipped cream.

  5. How perfectly rediculous to suggest this is healthy. Bananas+Cinamon fine, but then add Honey, Ice Cream, Cream???? Get real.

      Healthier than a sugar laden cake with frosting wouldn’t you say? Looks like a nice TREAT, under 200 calories even with the honey and a 1/4 cup scoop of vanilla ice cream. We don’t have to be martyrs to eat healthier.

    2. I used sugar-free pancake syrup instead of honey. You can also use Halo Top ice cream or low-calorie whipped cream.

  6. My husband and I loved this. Topped it with a little whipped cream. I am always looking for ways to make a healthy dessert with fruit.

  7. I have tried the same recipe with Sweet potatoes. Instead of baking, I microwave the SP. Yummy! Nice midafternoon snack!

  8. This might be a dumb question but should I take the peel off or scrape it from the peel after it’s cooked? 

    5 stars because I already know it’s going to be delicious!

  9. I can’t thank you enough for this one! I made it and our family loved it. Unfortunately we are a sweets family, but this dessert will be great in rotation without the guilt. Thank you again!
