This is a good little snack if you’re looking for something sweet or even a tasty dessert to serve to family and friends. It takes just a few minutes to make and would also be perfect with a couple of strawberries or a little dairy/dairy-free yoghurt or ice-cream on the side (if tolerated). If you are unable to tolerate butter or ghee you could substitute it with coconut oil.
The serving size is suitable if you’re on the low FODMAP diet and is in line with the Monash Low FODMAP Diet App and the FODMAP Friendly app (at the time of writing).
1 firm banana
1 tsp maple syrup
1 tsp cacao powder
1 tsp butter/ghee
1 tbs walnuts
Slice the banana in half lengthways and roughly chop the walnuts
Heat a skillet/frypan and add the maple syrup, cacao powder and butter or ghee
Place the banana in the pan and cook for a minute or two on both sides
Remove the banana from the heat, scrape the remaining sauce onto the banana, top with the walnuts and enjoy!
