Fried Nanners with Honey-Toasted Walnuts.

I got this recipe here (it’s a Pinterest find) and made it for an afternoon snack. Depending on the ripeness of the bananas, this ranges from uber-sweet to pretty darn sweet. My kid & I are both fans, and I’m sure you’ll love it too!


3 bananas

2 tbsp honey

1 tbsp water

1/2 c walnuts

Coconut oil

Cinnamon for sprinkling


Cut bananas in half and peel. Slice into long strips or into “coins.” In a small bowl, combine honey and water; set aside. In a medium to large skillet, heat 1 tsp coconut oil (or spray with coconut oil spray) over medium heat. Place bananas in hot, oiled pan, and fry until golden on one side, about 2 minutes (you’ll probably flip the first ones as soon as you get the last ones in the pan). Using a fork, gently lift the banana slices and flip them over. As soon as the last ones are flipped, turn off heat. Immediately drizzle with honey mixture and allow to bubble until settled, about 1 minute. Remove from pan and sprinkle generously with cinnamon. Return skillet to medium-high heat and add walnuts. Toast walnuts until fragrant and warm, about 2 minutes, stirring well to get the honey and coconut oil off the bottom of the pan. Pour walnuts over bananas. Enjoy immediately.
