  • 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.
