I love dessert. It’s safe to say I’m obsessed and addicted to dessert. So when I can find a dessert that’s actually pretty good for you, well, it’s a winner! Bananas are full of potassium, and they also have calcium and Vitamin A. Cinnamon is loaded with antioxidants, has anti-inflammatory properties, and it’s said to reduce the risk of heart disease. Put the two together and you’ve got one healthy dessert, not to mention a great tasting one too!
I made this recipe as a snack for Travis and I one Sunday, but we both agreed it would taste amazing on top of ice cream for a full on dessert. Of course, adding ice cream might make this less healthy, but I won’t tell if you don’t!
Try these Fried Cinnamon Bananas
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Bananas (obviously)
- Cooking spray
So few ingredients and this recipe literally takes just minutes to make! I love easy! And I love delicious!
Start by slicing the bananas. Coat a skillet with cooking spray and set on the stovetop on medium heat.
Mix together all your seasoning in a small bowl and set aside. Place the banana slices into the skillet and cook for 2 minutes.
Sprinkle half the seasoning mixture over the banana slices. Turn them over, and sprinkle the remaining mixture on them. Let them cook for two more minutes.
You can eat them by themselves or use them to top vanilla ice cream! Yum!
