“FRIED” HONEY BANANAS

May 15, 2013

To quote a friend: I don’t eat desserts. Except when I do.

Accurate. Perhaps too accurate.

In my never-eat-dessert-unless-it’s-my-birthday (which ps: is today) world, I’ve been eating these for “dessert” every night all week. The only ingredients are banana, honey, olive oil, and cinnamon. All health beneficial and crispy-yummy. They’re amazing by themselves, or give a nice upgrade sprinkled over french toast.

  • Lovely recipe! Thank you so much for sharing!
    I am a big fan of coconut oil and the idea of frying a banana in it made my mouth water!
    Although my banana slices didn`t quite get all nice and brown like yours, they were delicious especially after pouring the honey mixture over it and sprinkling everything with cinnamon.
    Awesome pictures too!

    Excellent… but no olive oil, please! Use butter.

    These are amazing over vanilla ice-cream! I threw in an extra dash of cinnamon over top with dollop of whip cream. What a delicious dessert.

  • Tasha

    These were delicious, but I couldn’t get mine to brown up like yours did. I think my medium heat is lower than yours! I’ll have to try them again..and again…
