  1. Prepare the Bananas: Start by peeling the bananas and cutting them into rounds, about ⅓ inch thick. This size is perfect for getting a soft but not mushy texture.
  2. Mix the Spices: In a small mixing bowl, combine your sweetener (sugar or substitute), cinnamon, and nutmeg if using. This spice mix will give the bananas a delightful warm and aromatic flavor.
  3. Cook the Bananas: Spray a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray and warm it over medium-low heat. Place the banana slices in a single layer in the skillet.
  4. Season and Cook: Sprinkle half of the cinnamon-spice mixture evenly over the banana slices. Let them cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the bottom starts to brown slightly.
  5. Flip and Finish: Carefully flip each banana slice to the other side. Sprinkle the rest of the spice mixture over the bananas. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, until the bananas are tender and caramelized.
