Pan-fried bananas! Seriously! This recipe is out of this world, guys. You have to try it!
Let's talk bananas. Bananas taste perfect in practically everything. Pancakes, muffins, cookies, breads, ice creams, yogurt, blah blah blah blah blah...bananas are so tasty!! And...they are really good for you. Hopefully you know that. 😉
Anyway, this week's first banana recipe is called Pan Fried Bananas. They are warm, sliced bananas with a little sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. (Look at the picture above). It might sound odd, it might so gross, but it's delicious! They are super tasty plain, but it would be amaaazing on top of pancakes or waffles too. YUM! I've never actually tried that with this recipe (I've only had them plain) but now I really want to try it! Ahhh! Next time I eat waffles, I'll try to whip up some fried bananas!
My only advice to you with this dish is minor. Make sure you don't overcook your bananas. I guess if you're actually trying to make a sauce/topping for ice cream or something, that would be tasty and work. Otherwise, your bananas will kind of be mushy sludge. And how do you eat mushy sludge unless it's a sauce on something? Yeah, I'm not quite sure...
Anyway, don't leave your bananas cooking in the pan too long. Just keep an eye on them and you're good to go.
Now let's make this recipe!!! 🍌🍌🍌
Pan Fried Bananas (serves 2)
2 overripe bananas
a little coconut oil
1 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
Slice your bananas. Grease a small frying pan with a small bit of coconut oil and turn up the heat. Mix the sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg into a small bowl. Add your sliced bananas to the frying pan and cook for 1-3 minutes. (You can use your judgement). Then sprinkle 1/2 of the mixture onto one side of the bananas. Cook for about 1 minute, and then flip and add the other 1/2 of the mixture. If your bananas still aren't soft enough, you can cook them 1-3 minutes more. Serve warm plain, over waffles, or whatever else you'd like. ENJOY! 😊
