Tips For Making Pan Fried Caramelized Bananas
Don't Over Cook The Bananas
The cooking times for these caramelized bananas depends on the type of stove you have but keep an eye on them at all times so that they don't burn.
Cut The Bananas Thickly
I like to cut them so that there is an average thickness of roughly 2-3 centimetres. You can chop them a little thicker if you like.
Don't Overcrowd The Pan
This will make it difficult to manage and flip the bananas.

The BEST way to serve this treat is with vegan ice cream. Warm bananas contrasted with the texture of cold ice cream is a true winner.

How To Store Leftover Bananas
Store them in the fridge for up to 2 days. You can either reheat them or eat them cold. You can't go wrong.
