Things I am going Crazy for this Week.
It’s banana crisp time.
Yup, that’s right.
Banana Crisp.With an oatmeal cookie crumble.
Chocolate Kahlua sauce.
It was actually called one of my best desserts yet.
And it took me all of maybe ten minutes to put together.
Too bad the photos took me two full day and I still am not even close to being happy with them.
I am having the hardest time adjusting to this different light in Oregon. It is kicking my butt. Like big time.
Anyway, have you ever heard of a banana crisp? Cause I sure have not.
See I love berry crisp, but not for dessert and definitely not with chocolate. I am not a berry and chocolate person. I am however a banana and chocolate person. Especially bananas that are warm, gooey and caramelized. Bananas at their best.
Oh and the oatmeal cookie topping?
Yeah, I have no idea if it is really considered and oatmeal cooking topping, but it sure tastes like one, so I called it one. It’s buttery and crunchy and on top of the bananas?
So darn good.
But then there is more awesomeness.
The chocolate Kahula sauce.
Holy moly, oh my gosh. Wow.
Really that is all I have to say. The whole dessert is just awesome. Do everything, the crumble, the ice cream and the sauce. Seriously, don’t skimp on any of it. Oh, and did I mention it is so easy? Cause it is. All you need is one bowl, one baking dish and a bowl for the kahlua sauce. Done in 25 minutes. Yes!!
Plus, it is Friday and that means you get to eat a hot banana crisp with ice cream and chocolate kahlua sauce dripping down the ice cream. And really, there is no need for an ounce guilt about this crisp because one, bananas are crazy healthy and two, oatmeal is crazy heathy. Heck yes!
So let’s go get our crisps on!

I say breakfast, lunch or dinner. Hey, it is bananas and oatmeal after all!
Sounds delicious. Can this be made in one large cake dish or springform pan? If so, what changes would you make?
Sure, I bet this would work in a large cake pan, you would need to increase the bake time! I hope you love the recipe:) xT
In your Oatmeal Cookie Banana Crisp with Kahlua Sauce recipe, the ingredients for the first layer (with bananas) calls for 6 Tbsp. of unsalted butter. However, in the cooking instructions, the butter is omitted. Which is correct? Again, this is for the first layer.
The butter is going to be used in step 4. I hope you love this recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan
Do you put butter with the bananas, it’s in the ingredients list but not in the directs.
So sorry about that, yes add the butter with the bananas. I hope you love the recipe! xTieghan
Tieghan: A few things! 1. I got a little nervous using the skillet instead so I trusted you and used my baking dish. 2. However- I almost ruined the whole thing! I pre measured all the ingredients so I could just throw it together after we had finished dinner. With 6 minutes left in the oven, I realized that I had 6 tbsp of butter that didn’t go into the crisp!! I frantically read through the recipe and confirmed you had 6 tbsp of butter in both the bananas part of the recipe and the crisp part of the recipe. Determined to fix it I scraped off the crisp part in order to put the butter into the bananas.. but then realized it was probably just an error in the ingredients list! So I just scraped the crisp back onto the bananas and finished baking it. I’m assuming you didn’t mean to include butter in with the bananas? 3. My guests LOVED this!!! Ahhh so good. I’m glad I didn’t screw it up. Thanks!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Oh no! So sorry for the trouble, but so glad it all turned out ok! I am going to look over the recipe now and make sure it looks good! Please let me know if you have other questions. Glad you love this recipe! Thanks! 🙂
Tieghan, planning on making this for company Sunday night. I am wondering if I could also make this in my cast iron skillet? it’s a 12 inch. I’m just not sure if it would affect the cooking temp/time? I just think everything belongs in my skillet… you know? 🙂 thanks!
Hi! A 12 inch skillet will be great! I would bake 22-25 minutes, but I don’t have exact times as I haven’t cooked this on that size skillet. Just keep and eye on it! Please let me know if you have other questions. Hope you love this recipe! Thanks! 🙂
Hi there ! Stumbled upon your blog & recipe via Google .. This is surely too tempting to pass up.. Am gonna make it very soon and let you know how we liked it .. Many thanks !
Thank you so much! Hope you love the recipe!
Was looking on Google for a unique but comfort food dessert for tonight – the mister loves bananas and I love chocolate….but as soon as I seen we shared names (although spelled differently) I knew it was meant to be! Made up and in the oven as we speak – YUM!
Haha! So cool! 🙂
Hope you both LOVE these! 🙂
Top notch dismay – through which appears excellent!! When i the moment observed Ina Garten create human being cozy brownies capped obtaining its polar environment treatment together with I just now had to make it come to be together with looked like there was therefore certain to get many little skillets with the task (just including your spouse implemented therefore you carry out here). Alas…I didn’t waste money around the griddles together with implemented this kind of golden throw away bitter cups…now When i hope I had designed i really add the employment of them to make just the thing you’ve obtained here. Love through which encouraging tear separated!
