Bananas are one of the most versatile fruit on the market. One of my favorite childhood food is Banana Fritters. The recipe includes a simple mixture of flour, mashed ripe bananas, brown sugar, flour and baking powder. In addition, Vanilla extract and nutmeg are often added as flavoring agents. The batter is then shallow fried in vegetable oil until golden brown.
Save Your Over-ripe Bananas
If your bananas are over-ripe, do not through them out. Peel them and place in zip locker bags and throw in the freezer for later use.
Ripe Bananas are versatile and can be used to make a smoothie, eaten as a breakfast item, a snack or use to make my Banana Rum Cream Cheese Loaf.
Even though bananas come in different shapes, sizes and various species, they are all packed with good nutrition. They contain: potassium (~400 mg), ~3 grams dietary fiber, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6 and very low in calorie ~100 -110 calories depending on the size of the banana
Adding swirls of Coconut Bacardi Rum cream cheese into batter take this banana loaf recipe to the next level.
