Fried Cinnamon Banana Bites
Credit: Dizzy Busy & Hungry
2 tbsp Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
• Combine Sugar, Cinnamon, and Nutmeg in a bowl.
• Peel the Banana, and chop it into circles, 1/3 of an inch thick.
• Coat the banana chunks in the Cinnamon mixture. Repeat until all are coated.
• In a small frying pan, spray some cooking oil on the pan and turn it on a medium heat.
•Only doing a small batch at a time, place a few of the coated banana chunks onto the frying pan, let them cook for 30 seconds, then flip them over and let them cook for another 30 seconds. Take them out of the pan and place them on a plate, sprinkle more of the Cinnamon mixture on top of the cooked pieces. Repeat until all our cooked.
MenuDuet’s Notes: In the picture displayed;
-We cooked the first batch of bananas for 1 minute on each side, but they turned out a bit mushy, the second batch, at 30 seconds on each side, were much better.
-The reason we cooked smaller batches is because they are so time sensitive and it takes time trying to flip them all.
-Eat right away, the longer they sit, the more mushier they get.
These Cinnamon Banana Bites were an interesting take on bananas, by themselves they were okay, but we both agreed these would have been much tastier on some pancakes, waffles, or even ice cream.
Really easy to overcook and make mushy, the original recipe wanted them cooked for 2-3 minutes on each side, but even 1 minute was to mushy for my liking.
The sugar, cinnamon mixture was delicious and complimented the banana nicely. We tried freezing a couple after to try as a frozen delight, but they were much better hot off the pan, then they were cold.
