Fried Bananagains

I. Love. Fried Bananagains. I Love Fried. Fried Bananagains.

That's a song I sing because it's true. I love fried bananas.

Bananas are a terrific source of Potassium. Potassium is good for dexterity. Dexterity is useful when performing things like surgery or when you type on the computer all day like a nerd.

This is my new favorite dessert. Since I'm broke and I don't want to get fat again, I've substituted chocolate as my main sugar intake for this addictive treat.

You will need:

  • bananas
  • brown sugar
  • butter
  • possibly some pecans or walnuts

Cut one banana into quarters, longways. Heat up a small frying pan.

Then put in a pad of butter and wait for it to sizzle a little. Sprinkle some brown sugar into the butter and next place the bananas in pan, preferably flat side down.

After a minute or so, check to see if the under side is brown, then flip the bananas. Cook until brown on each side.

I like to top mine with whipped cream, and nuts. Sooo yummy.

I've heard lots of people rave about fried bananas, but never tried it myself. My question in this recipe is: isn't chocolate the better choice? I mean, with the fructose in the bananas, the oil, the sugar and the whipped cream, doesn't that amount to more fat and calories than a serving of chocolate?

The benefit is that it's more delicious this way.

Plus, chocolate has a tendency to taste burnt when you fry it with butter.
