Serves 4


  • 1/2 cup plus 1 Tbsp. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 5 Tbsp. maple syrup, divided
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 4 bananas, halved crosswise and then lengthwise
  • 1 1/4 cups brewed coffee
  • 1 red plum, cut into thin wedges
  • 2/3 cup walnuts, toasted


    Total time: 25 minutes

    In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese with Greek yogurt, 2 Tbsp. maple syrup and vanilla extract until well blended. Set aside. In a 12" nonstick skillet, melt unsalted butter. When very hot, add bananas, cut side down, and cook over high heat until browned on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a large plate. In the same skillet, add brewed coffee and 3 Tbsp. maple syrup; boil over high heat until reduced to 3/4 cup, about 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat. Divide bananas, syrup and red plum wedges among 4 bowls. Spoon reserved yogurt cream cheese on top, sprinkle with walnuts and serve immediately.
