Healthy Snack Wednesday: Banana Walnut Chocolate Chip Fritters!!

Confession: I almost skipped this week’s Healthy Snack Wednesday post. True story. My sister is coming to visit tomorrow, so this is the night that Ry and I finish cleaning the house. So after cooking an AMAZING dinner (Pom Wonderful braised chicken, recipe will be up soon) and cleaning for a few hours, I didn’t feel like messing the kitchen up, or cooking.

Lucky for you my faithful readers, I got a craving….I wanted fried bananas. This is our easy go-to night-time snack. You spray a pan with cooking spray, heat it up, throw in some banana slices and brown them up. Walla! Delicious. But worthy of a blog post….eh….

Then Ryan got a craving, for banana “freehos” as he calls them. I think he means my banana fritters. Well I wasn’t about to get that crazy in the kitchen. So I compromised. Grabbed a little of this, a little of that, and a new delicious, healthy night-time sweet snack was born!

I don’t know if fritters is exactly the right name. It was kind of a mix between a fritter and a pancake, but we’ll go with it. I sprinkled ours with a little powdered sugar, but they would have been great with some fresh strawberries and a little whipped cream on top!

Bon Appetite!

  1. Oh my gosh! I will be making these tonight when I get home. Ended up making a chicken w/ vinegar and roasted veggie salad last night after our FB talk of chicken marinades. Thanks for the inspiration yet again!
