Cinnamon Banana

I found this recipe on pinterest for pan-fried cinnamon bananas, which was from Dizzy, Busy, and Hungry. So I decided to give it a go, as it seemed quick and easy with no expensive ingredients.banana

  • 2 Bananas
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/4tsp Cinnamon

Mix the sugar and spices in a bowl. Then slice the banana, and fry on a skillet with a little oil, over a medium heat.

After about 2mins on one side sprinkle half the spices onto the banana and flip over, then sprinkle the remaining spices and fry for another 2 mins.  I prodded the banana pieces regularly to avoid burning them.
