Baked Bananas

bakes bananas

It’s been Snow Armageddon in Portland and I have been “stuck” in my house for 4 days.  First, I hate the snow.  I hate feeling trapped in my house.  It’s during times like this that I can imagine how the first pioneers must have felt as the snow piled up outside.  They would have prayed that all their hard work growing food during the year would keep them alive during the long, dark winter.  No Ma’am, I don’t want anything to do with that way of life, and I’m already trying to convince Mr. Bejelly that we need to move to any place where the sun shines 300 days a year.

Anyhow, back to this week’s recipe.  It came about because I had nothing else in my pantry.  Sometimes you get the best results when you have to be creative.  This is one of those times.  It’s warm and simple, and perfect for these cold winter days.

    I have never heard of baking bananas like this! Would it work with overripe bananas because right now I just toss them in the freezer and forget about them. I would rather put them to use.

    Kelly, thank you so much for advertising Paleocon! I started listening to some of the sessions and decided to take the 30 day challenge after listening to Katie, the wellness mama. I’m surprised how easy it has been for me. I did get rid of everything non-Paleo from my kitchen.

    We visited friends this past weekend (lucky us – escaped the Portland snows!) and when a luscious chocolate cake was served, I didn’t mind not eating it at all. The gluten free three of us enjoyed macaroons instead.

    I’m looking forward to trying some of your yummy sounding desserts. Thanks for making them nut free as my husband has nut allergies.

    Hey Kelly! Some of my best (and worst, haha) dishes tend to be when I have nothing in the kitchen. I think it just forces us to get creative :) This dish looks fantastic! I already have all the ingredients, I’m definitely making this over the weekend!
