Grilled Peanut Butter Banana Split

Being a fan of both food and fitness, it’s sometimes hard to get the balance of both right. I love going to the gym and keeping fit but I also love a sweet treat so finding a recipe that isn’t full of fat, sugar and calories but at the same time cures my sweet cravings is something I would have to give a go!

I was researching recipes that were healthy alternatives to sweet treats and I came across a recipe for an alternative to a banana split and it involved some of my favourite foods, peanut butter, Greek yoghurt and berries so I decided to give it a go.

This recipe makes 2 servings

2 bananas
½ cup of Greek yoghurt (I used full fat)
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 tsp butter
Mix of berries to top


  1. Heat the griddle plate to a medium/high heat and then melt the butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
  2. Slice the bananas down the middle so you have two halves and then brush the banana with a layer of the melted butter. You don’t need to brush any on the skin side.
  3. In a bowl mix together the Greek yoghurt and peanut butter, I used Whole Earth peanut butter as I feel it’s by far the best tasting and it contains only natural ingredients.
  4. Once the griddle is hot, Place the bananas skin side up and cook for about 3 minutes. Once the 3 minutes is up, flip them over and cook the skin side for a further 1-2 minutes.fullsizerender-1
  5. Carefully remove the bananas from the griddle and then using a spoon life the bananas out of the skin.
  6. Place the bananas on a plate and spread the yoghurt mixture over the top and decorate with your chosen berries. To finish squeeze some runny honey over the top and there you have it, a healthier alternative to banana split.fullsizerender-2

What I really like about this griddle plate was the size of it, griddle plates that I have used in the past have been relatively small where this one is very spacious and has two sides, a griddle side which I used in this recipe and also a flat side which I used to cook bacon on and it worked really well.

One thing I was worried about was cleaning the plate but it was a lot easier than what I thought, although you do have to leave it a while to cool down. I would definitely recommend this product but they have so many other products to offer as well.
