Baked Maple Bananas


We eat a lot of bananas in our house. I would say between the four of us we easily go through six bananas a day (yes, even baby Chloe eats one a day now). Sometimes, I think I live in the monkey house.

When I want to spice things up a little and do something beyond the standard banana cut up on oatmeal, blended in the smoothie or just eaten on it's own, I make this quick, sweet dish. It seems very fancy and difficult to prepare, but it couldn't be easier to do. Whether you're making this for breakfast or dessert, it will excite you toddler and impress the adults. For the little ones, I like to serve the bananas with plain yogurt, but for a party you could add a scoop of Yogurt, Honey and Cinammon "Ice Cream" to make it a little more elegant.

    Ooh, I just found your web site from cafe mom and I'm excited. I just started browsing and found this recipe (since I have a ton of bananas ready to go). What temp. do you use? 350? You didn't specify and I'm one of those \"recipe followers\"...

    We made the bananas & pureed with ripe pears and the result was amazing!! We then mixed with vanilla greek yogurt! We will also mix it with oatmeal this week. My 8 month old son couldn't get enough of it tonight. :)

    This was super good! My son gobbled it up, and I put the leftovers in his oatmeal the next morning. Will definitely make again for a treat.
