It depends on your intention. If you desire more bananas, it's #1. If you don't desire more bananas, it's #2. Either way is fine. You can say "thank you" with or without intending increase.
The situation that manifests scarcity is this one: I desire bananas, and the universe gives me a banana. I'm pissed off that I only got one banana instead of a whole bunch, since I want a lot more than one. I resent the fact that I have only one banana, while somebody else right next to me got two. That's totally unfair. I guess that if I want more bananas, I'll have to find a way to get them. But isn't that greedy? After all, there are people who have no bananas. How can I justify having bananas when so many people have none? And so on...
