Fried Bananas

I don’t like bananas.  At all.  But we always have them in our house, cuz for some strange reason, my husband loves them.  Additionally, we always have honey and cinnamon in the house, for cooking purposes.  I’ve had this fried bananas recipe from The Crohn’s Journey Foundation on my “husband-related” Pinterest board for quite awhile, but never had made it, until Saturday morning when I was like, hey, why not?  The original recipe (you can click the link above), shows them as being a bit more crispy, but they were really more on the mushy side.  I didn’t have any of them, but Kevin ate them (I only made one banana).  He said they were alright and obviously edible, but said they were not something he’d request in the future.

One neat thing, though, is that the original link has a list of health benefits of the ingredients used, so it’s a bit of a learning experience mixed into the cooking venture!

If anyone has ideas on how to make them crispier (without using tons of oil, or some sort of breading), please let me know!  Or, better yet, if you have your own fried banana recipe, please pass it along so I can test it out on my husband!
