Banana-Honey-Lemon Syrup

Talk about simple.  This yummy honey-lemon-banana combination goes together in minutes (I was going to say seconds, but that would be hyperbole).  And it is sooo good -- the sweetness of honey joining the tang of lemon juice.  I had it over whole grain waffles from Trader Joe's, but it would be equally delicious over pancakes, and maybe even ice cream. 

Next time you're looking for something to jolly up your morning meal, whip up a batch of this.

And when you're done, try not to lick the plate.  It's really not very classy (she says, wiping syrup off her nose).

3/4 c. honey
4 T. lemon juice, divided
2 ripe bananas

In small pan, heat honey and 3 T. of lemon juice until just bubbling.  Remove from heat.  In separate bowl, slice bananas and squeeze remaining lemon juice over; swish fruit around in bowl so bananas are covered with juice (this will keep them from turning dark).  Add into honey mixture and serve over waffles or pancakes.

NOTE:  If you're not feeding a crowd, feel free to divide recipe in half or in quarters.  The banana slices look a tad gnarly the next day.

ANOTHER NOTE:  I have linked this post to Works for Me Wednesday over at We Are That Family blog.  Check it out for some great ideas.

Your Banana-Honey-Lemon Syrup would make a dreamy topping for International Waffle Day. (March 25th)

Yeah for våffeldagen! I usually eat mine with ligonberries but perhaps I'll try some of your yummy syrup instead.

Lynn, thank you for your words. I have looked and looked for titles of books written about this age. I keep going back to old titles I have because so little is written. One thing I have never read is that this is just the best of all. No one ever told me that. God did of course, but not seeing very much of it in the world I never knew if you did what He said, the best was yet to be. I loved when they were babies, I loved teenagers and now I love the adults they are and the wonderful grand children we have.
Why don't you write another book?
One for this age. :)
Thank you so much for visiting and your thoughts.
