Our friends in Colorado woke up today to several inches of snow — our first snow of the season! We were delighted to find a new wintry recipe from Chef Biju waiting for us. For those who skipped the grocery run before the snow, we’re happy to offer you Biju’s “Snow Day” Banana Cobbler.
From Chef Biju:
Here is a very quick dessert or cold-weather treat made from fruit and whatever granola you already have in your cabinet.
2 servings, total prep + cook time 30min
1 cup bananas, sliced thick (1 large banana)
1/2 cup your favorite granola
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup almond milk (any milk will do)
a sprinkle each of cinnamon and nutmeg
1. Melt butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium saucepan.
2. Stir in sliced bananas and coat thoroughly.
3. Stir in your favorite granola and milk.
4. Mix thoroughly and transfer to oven-safe baking dish. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
Finish: drizzle with your favorite topping; molasses, maple syrup, whip cream, or perhaps ice cream.
Chef Biju’s Snow Day Banana Cobbler is not in The Feed Zone Cookbook, but the book does have several healthy dessert indulgences that scratch the sugar itch.
