This home-made take on a retro America diner favourite raises the bar. Cooking bananas really intensifies their flavour. Keep the ice-cream to a minimum and this decadent-looking dessert actually ends up being relatively healthy.
4 large ripe bananas
4 tbsp granola (check gluten free if required)
4 tbsp chocolate chips
4 tsp honey
4 scoops vanilla ice-cream, to serve (gluten-free if required)
1-2 cups thick yoghurt, to serve
½ cup crushed pistachios, to serve
1 cup mixed berries (raspberries, blueberries and strawberries work well), to serve
1 tsp ground cinnamon, to serve
1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
2. Split the bananas (don't peel them) in half lengthways, almost all the way through.
3. Fill each banana with granola and chocolate chips and drizzle with a little honey.
4. Wrap in foil and bake for 20 minutes.
5. Remove the foil and place the banana halves (with the skin) on a serving plate. Add a scoop of ice-cream, a couple of spoons of yoghurt, scatter with the pistachios and berries and finish off with a little cinnamon.
