  • 1 medium ripe banana
  • 1 teaspoon butter or coconut oil


  1. Slice the banana into rounds about 1/2-inch thick.
  2. Warm the butter in a nonstick skillet placed over medium heat. When melted, add the bananas making sure each is on a flat side. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until just starting to brown.
  3. Flip over and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes. Serve warm over pancakes, yogurt, oatmeal, or as a simple side.



Use a fork or small spatula to flip the slices over.

Use coconut oil for a dairy-free option.

Sprinkle with cinnamon for a hint of spice.

Serve over pancakes, waffles, oatmeal, yogurt, or cottage cheese. Or serve on their own.

Double the recipe to make a larger batch.

These are best served warm out of the pan but can be reheated and served warm if needed.
