SCD Fried Bananas

Ok, so you have an attack of the sweet tooth.  You just really need a little something to satisfy it.  You don't have anything baked and all you see on the counter is two lovely ripe bananas.  You could make muffins or bread but you really don't feel like going to all that trouble.  So what do you do??  Fry them of course!!

We first tried this wonderful and easy recipe at a restaurant in Houston, TX.  We were so excited to find it was just bananas fried in olive oil.  So of course we decieded to make them at home.  They are so simple to make but are just a perfect little treat.

Fried Bananas

2 ripe bananas
1/2 cup or more of olive oil

Cover the bottom of a skillet in olive oil.  Heat on medium low heat.  On my gas burner, I cook it on a three.  Heat the oil till it begins to sizzle a little. Then add the bananas.  Fry them about 3-4 minutes on each side.  It is easier to flip them if you use tongs.  Once the bananas are looking a little golden remove them from the pan and place them on a plate.  Lightly sprinkle with cinanmon.

I suppose if you really had a serious case of sweet tooth, you could drizzle with honey.  Jacob prefers his  with a light sprinkle of cinnamon only.

Go ahead try it. I guarantee you will go bananas for these fried bananas!!
