  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon margarine, melted
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour or almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

In a large bowl, mash the bananas. Mix in milk, eggs, and margarine until smooth. In a separate bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir dry ingredients into banana mixture. Heat oil in a deep fryer or heavy bottomed pan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Drop batter by spoonfuls into hot oil, and cook, turning once, until browned, 2 to 8 minutes. Drain on paper towels and dust with confectioners’ sugar.
