Banana churros, or churro banana bites, is an easy sweet treat made by pan frying ripe banana slices in butter or coconut oil, then coating them in cinnamon sugar.
- 2 bananas
- 2 tablespoon coconut sugar (or regular sugar)
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil (or butter)
Slice the bananas. Combine the coconut sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
Melt the coconut oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Add the banana slices.
Drizzle half the cinnamon sugar over the bananas. Leave it to cook for about 30 seconds, then flip the banana slices over and drizzle with the other half of the cinnamon and sugar.
Allow a few minutes for the sugar to start dissolving, then remove it from the heat and serve!
Why is there so much liquid in the banana churros? – The liquid will be water and sugar that’s released from the bananas as well as the added sugar. Riper bananas will give more sugary liquid. This sweet liquid can be discarded, or used.
Can I use vegetable oil or olive oil? – No, avoid these. They will give the bananas an oily flavor.
If you have any leftovers (doubt it!), you can store them in the fridge for up to 2 days. Serve them cold, or reheat them if you prefer warm cinnamon banana slices.
