PAN FRIED BANANAS
Recently I’ve been having a few health issues and my doc had recommended I avoid all simple sugars for a little while.
A little while being SIX MONTHS!
It wouldn’t be a big deal if it were just sugars like the regular white version but it also means kinds like maple syrup and honey. This proving to be a tad difficult. I’m a food blogger heading into the holiday season. Cookies, treats and all things roasted with maple are high in demand.
Enter these Pan Fried Bananas.
Luckily, I still can enjoy fruit! I can also treat my self to butter, baby, so the search was on. I found this recipe and adapted it to skip the honey so it would be simple sugar-free. In went some vanilla instead to add some warm flavour.
Can you tell me a sweeter combo than bananas fried all crispy and nice in a little bit of brown cinnamon vanilla butter? I don’t think you can. 😉
These little beauties could not be easier to make either! Brown the butter with the cinnamon and vanilla in a small skillet and when it bubbling add in the banana slices.
Normally, I like using really bananas in my treats but for this recipe it is best to use unripe ones. You don’t want them green but a nice firm, bright yellow banana is ideal.
Enjoy them as is, if you want a totally sugar free treat, or make them the crowning glory on a bowl of vanilla ice cream.

Remove form heat and enjoy warm on its own or with yogurt or ice cream.
