  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla paste or extract
  • 2 tablespoons room temperature maple syrup
  • 6 eggs


  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  • Mash the bananas with the vanilla in a bowl, then add the maple syrup and mix well.
  • Separate the eggs.
  • Using an electric mixer, whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks. The more you whisk the eggs, the higher the soufflés rise in the oven.
  • Add the yolks to the banana mixture and stir well.
  • Gently fold the two mixtures together and divide between four to six silicone ramekins (if not using silicone, oil very lightly).
  • Bake in the oven for 15 minutes until well risen.
  • Serve immediately.
