Banana Buns

A great, family friendly breakfast solo or with some oatmeal! I've made these many times, but never shared on the blog, so here they are (as they bake in the oven on this wonderfully rainy Saturday)!

Banana Buns

1 1/2 T butter
1-2 bananas (use 2)
3 T brown sugar (I put almost a teaspoon in each muffin cup)
tube of buttermilk biscuit
Pecans or walnuts

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Drop a piece of butter in the bottom of 10 muffin cups (for 10 biscuits--you'll laugh at yourself if you use all 12--I've done it at least once!). Arrange banana slices (about 4 slices per cup if you use 2 bananas) on top. Sprinkle nuts (optional, of course) and brown sugar over bananas.

Top each with a biscuit.

Bake until golden brown, 8-10 minutes.

Place baking sheet on top of muffin tin while hot. Flip over carefully, tapping bottom to release buns. (This doesn't really work for me...I pretty much dig them out and flip onto a plate!)

  1. I'm gonna have to give this one a try. I wonder if apples would work too!

  2. I just made a version of these this morning using bananas and pecans. They were gooey and delicious. I'll blog about them later today. Thanks for the idea!
