6 ripe bananas

3 tablespoons melted coconut oil

Freshly grated nutmeg to taste (optional)

Greek yogurt for serving (optional)

Bananas Baked in Coconut Method

1. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees C. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Set aside.

2. Pour the melted coconut oil into a shallow bowl or plate.

3. Peel the bananas, cutting off the tops and bottoms. Carefully cut them in half lengthwise. Roll them around in the oil until well coated and lay them, cut side down, onto the prepared baking sheet. Brush them with any remaining oil and grate a little nutmeg over them, if using.

4. Bake for 20 minutes on a high shelf. Turn the bananas carefully with a spatula — don’t break them — and return them to the oven for another 10 minutes or so until they’re golden with caramelised edges. Carefully lift them from the tray and serve warm with a dollop of Greek yogurt.
