Mini Caramelized Banana Split Sundaes. Mini bananas pan “fried” with chopped walnuts and served overtop creamy Greek yogurt. All topped with a drizzle of dark chocolate. The chocolate is optional, but mandatory.

Mini Caramelized Banana Split Sundaes via JennySheaRawn.comThis Mini Caramelized Banana Split Sundae is one of our favorite ways to use overripe bananas. And we have overripe bananas every week. Most of the time, those bananas are put to good use – in these sundaes, this Dark Chocolate Walnut Banana Bread or in smoothies.

For this recipe, we used mini bananas, which Adrian picked up this week. They are so darn cute, aren’t they? Sometimes when we fry up the bananas we mash them up, but these mini bananas were too cute to mash, so we kept them whole.

This is the perfect after school snack for the kids – or a sweet and healthy dessert for any and all of us. And you can make these sundaes in less than 10 minutes. Just pan fry the bananas and walnuts until they’re caramelized, add to Greek yogurt and top with melted chocolate.

Mini Caramelized Banana Split Sundaes via JennySheaRawn.comDon’t forget the chocolate.

Mini Caramelized Banana Split Sundaes via JennySheaRawn.comCreamy, crunchy and sweet. The perfect indulgent AND healthy dessert. You can have both!
