Prep Time

Cooking Time

15 minutes


    3 to 4 ripe bananas, peeled and halved lengthways
    1/2 tbsp butter
    4 tsp coconut sugar (or maple syrup/honey)
    2 tbsp rum


    50 g cold butter, cut into cubes
    1/4 cup coconut sugar or light brown sugar
    1/4 cup almond flour (or all purpose)
    1/4 cup rolled oats (or coconut flour for gluten free)
    1/4 cup chopped pecan nuts or hazelnuts or seed mix
    1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/2 tsp ground ginger


    Pre-heat oven to the grill setting.
    Mix together the crumble ingredients until it has the consistency of rough bread crumbs and set aside.
    Peel and slice the bananas lengthways, and add to an oven-proof pan over medium heat along with the butter and coconut sugar.
    When the sugar has melted, add in the rum and flambée the bananas until caramelized.
    Scatter over the crumble topping and cook under the grill until the crumble topping is golden.
    Serve immediately with your cacao and coconut ice cream, or for a speedier version with thick cream, custard or vanilla ice cream.
