Grilled Bananas a La Mode


  • Bananas: Make sure to use bananas that are ripe but still firm. If they’re overly ripe, they’ll become mushy after grilling (which is okay flavor-wise, just not as pretty to look at)
  • Maple syrup: Use pure maple syrup: you could also use honey if desired
  • Rum: Add in a splash of rum if you like! This channels the bananas foster vibe even more
  • Cinnamon
  • Ginger
  • Nutmeg
  • Vanilla ice cream: Topping with melty vanilla ice cream takes it to star status
  • Chopped pecans: Optional, but the toasting crunch adds a finishing touch


  • Preheat a grill to medium high heat: that’s 375 to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Cut the bananas in half with the peel on. See the notes above.
  • Brush the tops with the maple syrup and spices.
  • Grill cut side down for 3 to 4 minutes, until you get those lovely char marks.
  • Flip and grill cut side up for 4 to 5 minutes. This finishes the cooking.
  • Use a spoon to scoop the bananas out of the peels. Garnish and enjoy!
