  • Author: Nyssa Tanner
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 3-4 servings 1x


Paleo caramelized bananas are made with only 5 ingredients, no processed sugar and can be ready in less than 15 minutes! The ultimate sweet treat to enjoy on top of ice cream, yogurt, or all by their delicious selves.


  • 3 medium sized bananas cut into 1/3 inch rounds (about 2 cups)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbs coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 12 tbsp coconut oil or ghee for frying


  1. Slice bananas no thinner than 1/3 inch thick and mix gently with salt, coconut sugar, and cinnamon in a bowl.
  2. Heat coconut oil or ghee in a large skillet over medium heat.
  3. Cook bananas in batches, spaced apart from each other, for about 2 minutes on each side, or until a nice caramel layer forms.
  4. Carefully move to a plate after each batch is done frying, and add more fat to the pan before the next batch if necessary.
  5. Enjoy on their own, or over your favorite coconut ice cream, yogurt, or any other way that suits your fancy!
