New Ways to Cook Bananas

While bananas are delicious when eaten raw, there are plenty of different recipes that include them and you’ll want to try them! You probably always have them around, but if you haven’t considered cooking them in one of these ways, we urge you to give it a chance.

Roasted Bananas

Roasting bananas is pretty easy. All you have to do is preheat your oven to 300°F and place the unpeeled, ripe bananas on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Use a fork to pierce each banana a few times and let them bake for around 20 minutes. When they are done and cool, open the peels and scoop out the roasted flesh. You can eat it like it is or use it in recipes.

Baked Bananas

You can make banana chips by baking thin banana slices in the oven. For more flavor, toss the slices in lemon juice first. Bake them at 200°F for 2 hours, flip them with a spatula, then bake them for another hour.

Grilled Bananas

You can enhance the flavor of bananas by grilling them. It’s a quick process that requires an oiled grill and 3-4 minutes. Cut the bananas in half lengthwise and grill with the cut side down. Serve warm with ice cream.
