Deep-Fried Cinnamon Bananas

Something about cinnamon and fried bananas conjures up images of breakfast on the beach in an breezy Air BnB with the softest touch of sun on my skin. While not the simplest, quickest breakfast recipe to have in your arsenal, it definitely is hard to make these without love. You can tweak this recipe any way you like it. Love cinnamon? Pile it on. Want a crispier banana? Add some panko crumbs and go heavy-handed with the arrowroot powder. More of a savory breakfast person? Ditch the coconut milk for regular milk, skip the condensed milk, and add a pinch of salt.

Whatever your heart desire, check out the recipe below the jump for the basics. Deep fried cinnamon bananas, your way 😉.

Deep-Fried Cinnamon Bananas


  • 4 bananas

  2. Place the wet and dry ingredients into separate mixing bowls. Mix each bowl well.

  3. Heat the sunflower oil on low-medium heat and begin to drop the banana pieces into the wet mixture and then the dry mixture. Shake off any excess batter and then slowly set into the oil.
