Baked Bananas

20 minutes
Serves: 4

Here's a quiz for kids: How many bananas does eight halves make?


  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 4 bananas

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

1. In a pot, the adults heats brown sugar, honey and water over low heat for 5 minutes, until sugar dissolves.

2. Kids peel each banana, and cut each one in half, cross-wise. (That's not the long way, but right across the middle.) Kids place all 8 halves in a 9" x 12" bakin pan. Kids carefully pour syrup over bananas.

3. Adult puts pan in oven. Bake for 5-10 minutes. Remove from oven, and turn bananas over. Bake 5-10 more minutes until slightly browned. Remove from oven.

4. To serve, kids carefully take each banana half out of pan, and put two halves onto each plate. Be very, very careful not to burn yourself! Adult pours syrup from baking pan into little pitcher. Kids pour syrup over each banana half. Everybody gets to enjoy dessert.
