TIPS FOR MAKING PAN FRIED CINNAMON BANANAS
- Use bananas that are slightly overripe. If they are very overripe, they will be too mushy to cook.
- Do not overcook. If they start to get too soft, they are done. This might happen quickly if your heat is a little too high so pay attention to them as they cook.
- Use good quality nonstick oil spray. Poor quality oil could affect the taste of your banana rounds.
- Sugar works best but you can also use granulated Splenda (or equivalent) if you prefer.
