Banana Split Ingredients

  • Banana: This recipe is the perfect way to use up overripe bananas. The riper, the better!
  • Cinnamon: Sprinkle a little cinnamon on the banana.
  • Greek Yogurt: I like Fage or Stonyfield Greek yogurt, but any kind will work. You could also use vanilla yogurt and skip the syrup.
  • Dairy Free: Use your favorite dairy free yogurt like coconut or almond.
  • Maple Syrup: Swap it with honey or agave.
  • Pecans: Chop two tablespoons of pecans. You can sub walnuts or almonds or omit them if you’re allergic.

How to Make a Breakfast Banana Split

  • Air Fry the Banana: Slice a ripe banana lengthwise, three-quarters of the way through, and top it with cinnamon. Air fry the banana for five to six minutes at 400°F until soft.
  • Greek Yogurt Sauce: While the banana cooks, combine a teaspoon of syrup with the yogurt.
  • Banana Split Toppings: When the banana is ready, top it with yogurt, cinnamon, pecans, and the remaining syrup.


  • Drizzle the banana with chocolate syrup, almond butter, or peanut butter.
  • Fruit: Add fresh berries, pomegranate seeds, raisins, dried cranberries, or crushed-up freeze-dried strawberries.
  • Top your banana split with chocolate chips, granola, coconut chips, or coconut flakes.
  • Spices: Add a dash of nutmeg or cardamom, or substitute pumpkin pie spice for cinnamon.
  • Classic Banana Split: Make it dessert with whipped cream, chocolate syrup, sprinkles, and a cherry on top.

No Air Fryer? No Problem!

Bake the bananas in the oven at 400°F for 10 to 12 minutes.
