Your little monkeys will love these gooey, fried banana treats!
In this season of sweets, there are plenty of cookies, cakes, pastries, pastilles and mints to go around. But if you're in the mood for something warming, these little treats are just the ticket.
You will need (for 9 pieces):
- 3 bananas
- 3/4 cups flour
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 2 cups breadcrumbs
- oil* (for frying)
- sugar-cinnamon mixture

- Peel the bananas and cut into thirds. With a sharp knife, carefully carve out the center of the banana slices on both ends. Fill the holes with Nutella.
- To prepare for frying, heat the oil in a deep frying pan or saucepan. Roll each banana piece in flour, then egg, then in breadcrumbs. Make sure you have the ends well-coated as otherwise the Nutella filling will leak out.
- Deep fry the bananas until golden brown. Remove from the oil with a strainer ladle. Then roll in the sugar-cinnamon mixture.
Best to let cool a little before serving to any little monkeys who may be waiting. Just a few minutes of patience and then these warm and gooey fritters are ready to be enjoyed... try not to drool while waiting!
