We had these green bananas just laying around the kitchen and I figured…hey, it’s just like regulars bananas, right? The idea came to mind because I was feeling really hungry and it did not want to buy anything so I made a easy snack. Though we often use green bananas in our soups, with saltfish or other dishes, when there are ripened I find that they are as sweet as the regular bananas. I tried to make them all about the same shape, but it did not always turn out that way I wanted (Sigh). Nonetheless, it tasted delicious –how would I know for sure? Easy, when the ‘selective eater’ is the first one to stuff their face.
(Serving: 15-20 pcs)
Let’s start with the wet ingredients shall we.
4 Whole ripe green bananas
1 Cup of almond milk (you can use your milk of choice)
2 tbsp of vanilla essence (extract)
1/2 Cup of olive oil
Place in the 4 bananas into the blender. Blend until the consistency is smooth (free of chunks) and thick.
Now, it’s time for the dry ingredients.
(*referring to stainless steel spoon pictured below)
4 Spoon* of flour
3 1/2 tbsp of baking powder
1 1/2 Spoon* of brown sugar (you can use any sweetener of choice)
4 tbsp of 1 grated cinnamon stick
1/4 tsbp of ginger powder
I prefer to use a wooden spoon for my wet ingredients and a stainless steel spoon for my dry ingredients. I find it easier to use the spoons that way because I feel like the wet ingredients do not stick as much on the wooden spoon and vice versa with the dry ingredients and the stainless steel spoon. Some might suggest otherwise.
