Banana Split Ingredients

 Banana Split
  • Banana: This dish is ideal for using up overripe bananas. The more ripe, the better!
  • Cinnamon: Sprinkle some cinnamon on top of the banana.
  • Greek Yogurt: Fage or Stonyfield Greek yogurt is my favorite, but any sort would do. You may simply use vanilla yogurt for the syrup.
  • Dairy Free: Use your favorite dairy-free yogurt, such as coconut or almond.
  • Maple Syrup: Swap maple syrup with honey or agave nectar.
  • Pecans: Chop two teaspoons of pecans. If you are allergic to walnuts or almonds, you can substitute them or leave them out.

How to Make a Breakfast Banana Split

  • Slice a ripe banana lengthwise, three-quarters of the way through, and sprinkle with cinnamon. Air fried the banana for 5–6 minutes at 400°F, or until tender.
  • While the banana is cooking, add a spoonful of syrup with the yogurt.
  • Toppings for a Banana Split: When the banana is done, top it with yogurt, cinnamon, nuts, and the leftover syrup.


  • Drizzle chocolate syrup, almond butter, or peanut butter over the banana.
  • Fresh berries, pomegranate seeds, raisins, dried cranberries, or crushed-up freeze-dried strawberries are all good options for fruit.
  • Chocolate chips, granola, coconut chips, or coconut flakes can be sprinkled on top of your banana split.
  • Spices: Try a touch of nutmeg or cardamom, or replace cinnamon with pumpkin pie spice.
  • Classic Banana Split: For dessert, top it with whipped cream, chocolate syrup, sprinkles, and a cherry.
