Oven Roasted Bananas 

Do you like Chinese foods? I know I do! There usually isn’t much choice for dessert on Chinese menus but that’s okay – most restaurants offer banana fritters. Banana fritters are usually coated in batter, deep fried, and served with lashings of honey plus ice cream on the side. Not exactly healthy but very tasty!

I really like banana fritters, but I save them for special occasions. Instead, when I’m at home, I use this recipe instead. It’s much healthier, contains no added sugar, and is the perfect weekend after-dinner treat. 

If, like me, you enjoy dessert from time to time, but don’t want to break the calorie bank, give this easy-to-make recipe a try. If you love it half as much as I do, I know you’ll make it again and again!
