The Incredible 19-Cent Fruit Transformation
Caramelizing bananas turns the cheap, grocery-store staple into something otherworldly, and Schiear has figured out a way to do it without tons of fat and calories. She makes a pancake batter (plumped up with one mashed banana), and when she ladles it onto a griddle, she drops a couple of banana slices onto each cake. A drizzle of honey before flipping allows the fruit to caramelize as it cooks. And instead of syrup, she whips up a maple-almond sauce that's much more substantial than the usual topping (so you can use less).
