I love Bananas Foster, but they are a little harder to make than I like for an average everyday dessert. So when I was looking around on Pinterest and found a recipe for Fried Bananas I was looking forward to trying it out!
I gathered the ingredients for this quick and easy dessert. It calls for a banana, honey, water, and coconut oil (the recipe calls for spray, but I just melted some regular coconut oil). The recipe also calls for the use of cinnamon, but I’m not a fan, so I didn’t use any.
Once I had everything gathered, I cut up the banana, mixed the honey and water together, and melted the coconut oil in a skillet.
When the oil was melted, I put the bananas in the skillet and let them brown on each side for approximately 3 minutes.
When the bananas are brown on both sides, turn off the burner and pour in the honey and water mixture. This gives it a bit more sweetness, and works to deglaze the pan. After the water had bubbled away, I removed them from the plan and placed them on a plate.
On the whole, I enjoyed the dessert, but the bananas were mushy. I thought they would’ve been firmer. Next time I make this dessert, I will use a less ripe banana and serve it with ice cream.
