Sainsbury’s have asked me to come up with a banana recipe in anticipation for Fair Trade fortnight which starts on the 24th February. All Sainsbury’s banana’s are Fair Trade so you can eat your banana knowing that the farmer’s have been paid fairly!
In the morning, if I am not in the mood for toast or cereal I quite often reach for a banana and some natural yoghurt. With that in mind I decided to go a bit further and make this into a breakfast treat which went down a storm with my two! Making this as a sundae and layering it in ether a sundae dish or a glass rather than just in a bowl means it transforms this easy to make breakfast into something really special!
For each Breakfast Banana Sundae you will need:
1 Scotch pancake (I used Sainsbury’s from the bakery section) or 1 bran muffin
Greek style natural yoghurt (I used Sainsbury’s be good to yourself Greek style probiotic yoghurt)
Clear honey (I used Sainsbury’s basic clear honey)
1 tablespoon of Granola to top
chopped nuts of your choice to top
To make simply:
- Slice the banana
- Cut the pancake or bran muffin into bite sized pieces
- Then simply layer the ingredients. I started with banana pieces, a piece of pancake, natural yoghurt then a drizzle of honey.
- Then repeat, I did this three times then a final topping of the natural yogurt.
- Sprinkle with the granola, nuts and a couple of banana slice then serve.
You could of course substitute the pancake or bran muffin for granola. I did this for mine as I made some basic fat-free granola which I made gluten-free.
To make this I used:
3 cups of gluten-free oats (use regular oats if you are not gluten-free I used Sainsbury’s Free From porridge oats)
1/8 cup of honey (I used Sainsbury’s basic clear honey)
1/8 cup of maple syrup
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
To make simply:
- Preheat the oven to 150c. Butter two large baking trays
- Mix all of the ingredients into a bowl until the oats all the oats are coated with the honey and syrup
- Put the mixture onto the baking trays and spread into a singe layer
- Bake for 10-15 minutes
- Allow to cool, once cooled the granola hardens
Store in an airtight container.
You can do some much with banana’s. When they are going a bit too ripe for me to eat I make them into banana bread, cakes or muffins. Of course the breakfast banana sundae recipe could be made into a dessert my swapping yoghurt for custard, maybe a chocolate brownie for the pancake, melted chocolate or perhaps some caramel, a topping of cream and to finish a grating of chocolate. Yum!
Disclosure: I have been sent a voucher from Sainsbury’s to make this banana recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
