Bagels for dessert? Absolutely!

  • 1 packet of ABE’S Bagels – Cinnamon and Raisin
  • 30g salted butter
  • 2 heaped tablespoons of soft brown sugar
  • 3 Dole Bobby Bananas
  • Little Island Vanilla Bean Coconut Ice-Cream
  • Pistachio nuts, roughly chopped

Preheat your oven grill to the highest temperature.

Slice two ABE’S Cinnamon and Raisin bagels in half and grill until nice and golden. Move to a lower shelf in the oven to keep warm.

Place a non-stick frypan on a low to medium heat. Add the butter & brown sugar, stir to combine & cook for 2-3 minutes until a caramel colour.

Slice each Dole Bobby banana in half lengthways and place in the pan cut side down with the caramel & cook, spooning over the liquid for 3-4 mins until the bananas are dark golden & caramelized.

Remove the bagels from the oven & place on a serving dish.

Working quickly, place the caramelized Dole Bobby bananas on top of the bagels, spooning over any leftover caramel

Add a scoop of Little Island Vanilla Bean Coconut Icecream and shower with the chopped pistachios

Serves 2
