  • 1 medium-large ripe banana
  • Natureul Tigernut Butter, Original Flavor
  • 1 large flour tortilla (we used seedy multigrain tortillas)
  • 2 teaspoons Coconut oil
  • Honey or agave nectar for drizzling


  1. Spread the tigernut butter on one side of the tortilla. Make sure to evenly coat all the way to the edges of the tortilla, as this will act as the glue that seals the edges and holds the “sushi” together.
  2. Place the banana on top of the spread towards one side of the tortilla. If you have a curvy banana, straighten it out a bit to ensure it rolls evenly. It may break in a few places, that’s okay.
  3. Roll the banana tightly in the tortilla. Seal the tortilla together on the edges.
  4. Using a sharp knife, carefully slice the wrapped banana into rounds, making them about an inch to an inch and a half thick. Use a gentle sawing motion to prevent ripping the tortilla.
  5. Heat a skillet over medium-low heat. Add coconut oil and allow it to heat up before adding the banana rounds.
  6. Once the oil has had time to heat up, add the wrapped banana slices, cut side-down so the banana is touching the pan. Fry for 2-3 minutes until golden brown, then flip and fry for another 2-3 minutes to achieve the same effect on the other side.
  7. Use a spatula to remove the banana sushi slices from the pan and turn off the heat.
  8. Serve and eat as-is, or drizzle with honey or agave nectar. Eat with chopsticks for the full sushi experience or use your fingers for easy cleanup!

Tips For Making Caramelized Banana Tigernut Breakfast Sushi

Use very ripe bananas. Bananas should be ripe enough to be pliable but not squishy enough to fall apart. Riper bananas will have more natural sugar content and caramelize faster and more evenly, whereas more unripe bananas will be starchier and not caramelize as easily.

Use a flexible tortilla. This recipe relies on rolling the tortilla tightly, so the more soft and flexible the tortilla, the better.

Skip the skillet. Running low on time or just prefer raw bananas to cooked? Because the ingredients are ready-to-eat and safe raw, you can skip the cooking steps and eat it cold.

Get ahead. Meal prep a few breakfasts ahead of time by preparing several wrapped and sliced bananas in advance, then reheat, eat cold, or take them on the go for a convenient breakfast or snack.
