Low Fat Banana Fritters

A great achievement! I made banana fritters that aren’t deep fried and loaded with fat! I love banana fritters, but they are not exactly light when you order them. I was able to create a low fat fritter by mashing ripe bananas and making a batter, then pan frying them with a little buttered flavored spray. Almost like a pancake with less flour. A little tricky to cook at first, but I found using low heat worked great. I served them with a small scoop (half cup) of Breyers Smooth and Dreamy Ice Cream, only a half point and delicious!

    I made these for first time. I followed recipe to the t, but they came out a bit mushy and still taste good.

    Next time I’ll used a fry pan as I used a grill and seems when I use the grill pancakes too don’t come out right..

  2. Hi Gina, I LOVE your recipes! I apologize if this question is a repeat, but could you substitute the regular flour for coconut flour? If so, what would be the measurement? 

    Thanks so much! 

  3. Just made these, a little too sweet for me so I'll leave out the sugar next time. I also used wholegrain spelt flour instead of white so they came out very soft.Thank you for the recipe 🙂

    These were delicious! I made a few changes like using whole wheat flour instead of regular flour and rum extract because I didn't have vanilla. They were so good, just gonna make them bigger next time so it doesn't take as long. Absolutely love this website!

    These are AWESOME! I used stevia instead of sugar and spelt flour – I also fried them in coconut oil. Delish! Thanks for the recipe. 🙂

  6. Breyers Smooth & Dreamy has only half a point per serving? I calculated 2 points for the fat free version.

  7. These are so good! I'm a teenager so I'm normally have to refuse the offer when my friends make pancakes or other breakfast foods of that sort. However, when I just made them these, they ate them up! Now they're gonna start making them and I wont be conflicted anymore!YAY!

  8. Hi Gina,

    I made this recipe a few weeks ago, and it was DELICIOUS! It tastes justtt like the banana fritters we get at our favourite Thai restaurant.

    Thanks so much for all your wonderful recipes!

  9. My husband & I love and frequent your blog. I rediscovered this recipe yesterday after being inspired to make a rainbow St. Patty's treat. With a little food coloring, patience, and a scoop of French vanilla ice cream as the pot of gold, this worked perfecty! Slainte!

    My bad, let me adjust that not to confuse anyone, you should whisk them, not cook them first. That would not be good! LOL

    @Laurie- these need to be handled gently since they don't have too much flour. I cooked them on low and was very gentle with them.

  11. The recipe says to scramble the eggs, I think you're actually supposed to whisk them before you mix them with the flour. Not cook them. But, it does say scramble, so it's a little confusing.
