Honey Fried Bananas, you complete me. AIP

Yesterday was just a good day.  The sun was shining, Fisher and Paykel sent me a new tablet PC (present for spending a gazillion dollars on a new tardis fridge) and then a friend from the anthroposophical reading group gifted me some home-grown honey in return for something I was supposed to do for him, but in the end didn't. He gave me the honey anyway. Some people are just nice.

I put that honey to the best possible use: fried bananas.  To anyone that thinks they could never do an Autoimmune Paleo (AIP) diet: try this and you'll realise there is nil deprivation involved.

Honey Fried Bananas

The process is very simple.

Melt some coconut oil in a non-stick pan;
Add banana slices (I used one medium sized banana);
Drizzle honey over the bananas, or just add it to the oil if it's hard;
Sprinkle a pinch of salt over the bananas;
Wait until the bananas are browned, then flip them. This is a bit tricky, I found using a spoon or fork was better than the usual implement;

Serve with coconut yogurt or cream.

As they cool, the bananas become chewy and a little bit crunchy.  My brain swooned.

I even packed some to take on a client visit. They were still warm when packed and melted the yogurt. Somehow this make it even better.

On the AIP, sweeteners like honey, maple and dried fruit are to be kept to a minimum, so this won't be an everyday thing. It's nice to know though, that should the need arise, I can indulge without messing up the protocol, and hopefully, the desired result.

Next Post: An AIP update. How's it going? How am I feeling? What have I changed? Do I still have my sanity and my friends? Have I lost weight? What about socialising?

All shall be revealed.
