Oh bananas! They are in abundance during Autumn, and are one of our favourite fruits to cook with. If you too, are finding yourself with a bunch of browning bananas at the end of the week, don’t throw them out. Here’s a roundup of some of our most loved banana recipes for you to devour. From banana pancakes recipes, to chocolate and banana dessert recipes, porridge with bananas and more, we’ve got all your banana bases covered.
Banana, Blueberry & Almond Pancakes
Add a colourful pop to your next batch of pancakes with some fresh blueberries. These banana, blueberry and almond pancakes perfectly combine fruit and nuts to create this delicious breakfast treat. And the gluten intolerants among us will love them, as the recipe uses almond meal and coconut flour.
Cinnamon Quinoa Porridge with Banana Pecan Topping
Porridge and bananas both make great breakfasts, so why not combine the two. This cinnamon quinoa porridge with banana pecan topping is a warm, filling brekky – perfect for those fast approaching chilly mornings. I don’t know about you, but feels like a breakfast in bed kinda idea to me. Now I just need to convince Mr. Food Book to make it for me 🙂
Banana, Raspberry & Coconut Bread
Wondering what to do with those over-ripe bananas? You make banana bread of course. Instead of the traditional loaf, create this banana, raspberry and coconut bread which includes the added bonus of juicy, fresh raspberries and yummy coconut.
Gluten Free Banana Cake
Here’s a gluten free party cake that really does take the cake. The gluten free banana cake tastes as good as it looks. If you’re not gluten free, this recipe easily substitutes the gluten free flour for regular flour too.
Chocolate Banana Madeleines
Few flavours are more perfect together than chocolate and banana. Give these chocolate banana madeleines from our friends at Everyday Delicious Kitchen a go, and invite the girls around for a spot of afternoon tea.
Banana Pecan Choc Pudding
We are suckers for any sort of pudding, especially as the weather gets cooler. Try this banana pecan choc pudding recipe next time you’ve got guests to wow. Chances are, they’ll love these gooey, oozy puddings as much as we do.
Banana & Salted Caramel Sundae
If banana and ice cream got together and had a baby, it would look a lot like this. While the days and nights are cooling down, that has never ever stopped us from eating ice cream. Recipes like this banana and salted caramel sundae make it just too damn hard. Yum!
Whether you slice them over porridge, bake bread or whip up a sweet treat with bananas, we certainly do love ’em. Go nanas’ these banana recipes!
