Just 3 ingredients and 10 minutes are needed for this quick and easy recipe for overripe bananas. All you need are 3 ingredients, a skillet, and 10 minutes! These pan fried banana slices are perfect for a special breakfast or an afternoon snack!
Lightly spray a large skillet with nonstick oil spray and warm over medium-low heat and add the banana slices.
Sprinkle ½ of the cinnamon mixture on top. Cook for about 2-3 minutes.
Flip the rounds, then sprinkle with the remaining cinnamon mixture. Cook for 2-3 more minutes until the bananas are soft and warmed through.
Slightly overripe bananas work best. If your bananas are too overripe, they will still taste good but they may be mushy.
If they start to get too soft, they are done. Be careful to not overcook them!
The quality of the oil can affect how the banana rounds taste, so make sure your oil is fresh and a good quality brand. Coconut oil is a good choice.
If you don't have oil or prefer not to use it, you can substitute butter for the oil.
You can substitute granulated Splenda (or equivalent), however white sugar works best.
You can also substitute brown sugar or honey.
Note that this is not a actually a substitute recipe for the fried bananas that are cooked by immersing them in oil in a fryer. These are just a tasty way to do something a little different with your bananas by cooking them in a pan or skillet.
Serve plain, sprinkle with powdered sugar, spoon them over vanilla ice cream, or drizzle them with chocolate syrup!
