gone bananas for baked bananas

New obsession alert: baked banana.

I shy away from complicated recipes because, let's be real, life is already complicated enough without long ingredient lists and big messes.

Then I found the easiest recipe in the world:
(1) Set oven to 400 degrees.
(2) Insert whole banana.
(3) Bake for 15 minutes.

I was a little freaked out when I saw the banana was black (like really, did I mess up this simple of a recipe?) But as soon as I caught a whiff of the hot gummie-bear-banana, I knew it was true love.

All you have to do is peel the banana and dig in with a spoon. The experience reminds me of a warm banana pudding. You can also add sugar/agave/maple syrup to make it super duper sweet.
