Bananas Foster Fried Bananas are one sweet treat you don’t want to miss out on! Bananas are dipped in a brown sugar /crushed corn flake mixture then fried to crispy perfection. You can either dip them directly in the Bananas Fosters sauce or top your ice cream with them and drizzle the sauce over it for one scrumptious dessert!

I was scrolling through my Pinterest feed and came to a picture of something crispy and delicious looking with sauce dripping off of it. Kind of like the picture above. It really wasn’t what I thought it was a picture of though. I thought it was Fried Bananas dipped in a caramel sauce. It was actually a crispy chicken tender dipped in gravy but I couldn’t get my mind off of the Fried Banana idea so I decided to create my own recipe!
I had never actually eaten a fried banana and wasn’t sure how I would like it then a few weeks ago on a trip to New York City Paul and I had dinner at a Brazilian Steak House. You know the kind where waiters come by with endless amounts of meats that they hand cut off of a giant skewer. (I think I’m still actually full from that meal!) At the start of the meal they came by with a few appetizers that they placed on the table and guess what one of those appetizers were. Yup…Fried Bananas! Of course you know I went straight for those babies since I still had that Pinterest picture on my mind. One bite and I knew I had to make my recipe idea.
The crispy corn flake/brown sugar coated Fried Bananas were delicious on their own but after making that Overnight Bananas Foster French Toast Casserole for Easter Brunch I haven’t been able to get my mind off that sensational Bananas Foster sauce. I knew it would totally put these Fried Bananas over the top.
I was right!
Top your ice cream, brownie or chocolate chip cookies with Bananas Foster Fried Bananas for one spectacular dessert! It will have your guests oohing and ahhing!
