Lately, I have been having a lot of stressful days, so to combat them I’m indulging in my favorite recipes. Let me convince you all further to try this delicious recipe for fried bananas…
To all my gluten free friends, did I mention this dessert is naturally gluten free. Also, these fried bananas provide a serving of fruit, the honey is soothing to your throat and chocolate has been found to have health benefits as well. I’m a firm believer that chocolate and wine are packed with health benefits, everything in moderation of course. Currently, I’m sitting here (in my office) wearing yoga pants and unwinding with a glass of wine doing everything but yoga.
The coconut and corn flake combo gives these fried bananas a perfect crunch that you’ll crave. You can serve the fried bananas with honey, warm chocolate sauce or both, but be sure to add that dusting of sugar on top (via Whisking Mama’s orders 😉 ) These detectable little bites of Heaven are also divine on top of vanilla ice cream.
These truly are The Best Fried Bananas that I’ve ever had!
This Warm Chocolate Sauce takes only a couple minutes and two ingredients!
