Are you a banana lover? You are in for a sweet treat with this post! I’m not only going to share a list of awesome banana desserts, I’ll also give you some ideas of what flavors go well with bananas in your recipes.

Use bananas for recipe swaps

First, let me talk about the versatility of bananas. I’m sure you already know that ripe bananas are super sweet and mash up easily to be added in a banana-flavored recipe. But did you know that they can also be used as a healthy swap in various dessert recipes?

Yep! You can use mashed bananas in place of fats like butter or oil. Their natural creaminess will add moisture to baked goods while also adding sweetness. This allows you to cut down on any added sugars! Just make sure that the flavor of bananas pairs well with the other ingredients.

What flavors go with banana?

Here are some perfect ingredients to pair with bananas in your desserts:

  • Chocolate: Bananas and chocolate are a match made in heaven. The cocoa flavor complements the sweetness of the bananas. Consider using a drizzle of chocolate, or adding chocolate chips to your banana recipes.
  • Nuts: Add a crunch to your banana treats with a sprinkle of chopped nuts. Walnuts, pecans, almonds, and peanuts work well with bananas.
  • Nut butters: Just like nuts, nut butters will pair well. Hello, peanut butter and bananas? Yes please!
  • Caramel: Add a bit of rich, buttery yumminess to your bananas with caramel. Drizzle caramel sauce on your banana creations, or you can even caramelize bananas.
