5 Great Recipes Using Bananas
Bananas are an extremely healthy food, containing fiber, potassium, vitamin C, and other nutrients and antioxidants, so why limit your banana consumption to just one piece per day at breakfast or as a snack?
There are plenty of recipes that include bananas, which are easy to cook with and also taste great, adding natural sweetness to a number of dishes.
Centers Health Care has a look at five great recipes that unlock the full potential of bananas.
- Banana Sushi Rolls
If you were expecting to read about traditional banana bread here, you’re in for a surprise! This isn’t real sushi; rather, it looks like the real thing! Slice up some bananas, dip each end in dark chocolate or nut butter, and then finish them off by rolling each end in Rice Krispies cereal to stick to the chocolate or nut butter.
- Banana Pancakes
Adding bananas to pancake batter will not only add more natural flavor, but it will make the texture even more smooth as well. For a snack or fun breakfast option, make the pancakes bite-sized.
- Dairy-Free Banana Coconut Ice Cream
Check out this recipe here for a vegan and Whole30-approved banana coconut ice cream recipe. Many dairy-free ice cream options lack that creamy taste, but the bananas solve that problem in this delicious dessert.

By using bananas and sweet potatoes, you’ll have a gluten-free muffin that’s naturally sweet with no refined sugars!
- Homemade Strawberry Banana Pop-Tarts
Pop-Tarts are a quick but unhealthy breakfast option due to its processed nature and high sugar content. Flip the script on the toaster pastry by creating your own, complete with fresh fruit! This recipe can net you breakfast treats in just about an hour.
