1pinch of cinnamon

For the caramel sauce:
1 tbsp light tahini paste

1 tbsp unsweetened almond milk

  5. Slowly whisk in the almond milk (or water) until smooth. Add a pinch of sea salt to taste.
  6. Remove the baked bananas from the oven or barbecue. Drizzle over the caramel sauce and top with a sprinkle of pomegranate seeds and fresh mint.
