Recently, I tried “Cinnamon & Sugar Fried Bananas“. I am not bananas about bananas (see what I did there lol), but I do consume my fair share of them. My daughter on the other hand will consume massive amounts of bananas if she has access to them. Recently, I got her a bunch of bananas and she consumed most of them, but ultimately was not fully successful in eating them all. I was left with three browning bananas. How to use these bananas? My mind out of habit went immediately to Banana Bread. Which don’t get me wrong here, I love banana bread, it’s a great way to utilize old bananas. I just am so sick of it. I feel like that is the only thing I ever make when I have to use up bananas. I was determined NOT to make banana bread with these. I also was dead set on making something that took little to no time since I was lazy. The solution was Fried Bananas.  I had seen a recipe regarding these a while back and it seemed simple enough…so I went for it. 

Check it out 🙂



  • 3 – Browning Bananas (Sliced)
  • 2 tbsp sugar (Granulated)
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg
  • 1 tsp powder sugar



  1. Heat a medium-sized frying pan on low-medium heat.
  2. Spray pan with some cooking spray to prevent sticking.
  3. Place the bananas on the frying pan.
  4. Sprinkle ½ of the sugar and cinnamon mixture on the banana slices.
  5. Cook for 1 ½ to 2 minutes.
  6. Flip the bananas.
  7. Sprinkle the remaining mixture.
  8. Cook for 1 ½ to 2 minutes.
  9. Remove from the heat.
  10. Place the banana slices on a plate.
  11. Sprinkle with powder sugar.
  12. Enjoy!

These overall were pretty good and exceeded my expectations. I don’t know if this is something I will regularly make, but it’s a great option for getting rid of browning bananas and also seem to be a great garnish for breakfast foods. So, I was happy I tried this out.


  • These are pretty decent alone. However, if you want to kick it up a notch, try putting these over French Toast or a Belgian Waffle with some syrup. I find that combination really brings out the flavors.
