Peanut Brittle Bananas
3 tbsp caster sugar
1 dsp water
1 oz unsalted butter
2 tbsp crunchy organic peanut butter
2 whole bananas
1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds (shake in a hot dry pan till they start to colour)
Put the sugar, water and butter into a deep non-stick frying pan and heat very gently stirring all the time. As the sugar and butter dissolve a toffee starts to form.
Now add the peanut butter, stir thoroughly, add the two whole bananas turning every minute or so to coat evenly.
Carefully lift the bananas with a slotted fish slice and place on cold plates.
Pour over the sauce, sprinkle with the sesame seeds and within a few seconds the mixture will set around the bananas forming a wonderful toffee peanut brittle.
This is unashamedly a pudding and although it has sugar and peanut butter it’s far healthier than you might think. The fats and oils in the seeds and peanuts are rich in vitamin E, minerals and mono-unsaturated fats which are highly heart protective. The 1 oz of butter is shared between two people and the banana provides much needed potassium, B vitamins and easily converted energy.
As an occasional treat this is better than most and as long as you’re certain that no-one in the family or amongst visiting friends has an allergy to peanuts or sesame seeds, don’t feel guilty.
