Coconut Fried Bananas

 Coconut Fried Bananas

Little bite size pieces of paradise.  This easy to make dessert uses real bananas and coconut oil.  These little bites of tropical paradise are great for breakfast, snacks, and desserts.  Fun dish to make to get the day started.  A great dish to substitute any high calorie/ high-fat dessert with!

This was my first time cooking with coconut oil.  I usually do not like coconut, at all.  However, these banana bites were great!  This recipe can be adapted.  Top with cinnamon or substitute honey with maple syrup.  It’s such an easy dish that this won’t be your last time making them!

Honey Fried Coconut Bananas

One of my favorite ways to start breakfast is with this recipe.  It doesn’t take long to make.  I just love cooking this, especially since it’s like eating a dessert first thing in the morning!

Total Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 2 bananas


  • 2 Bananas (, sliced)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Peel and slice bananas to into just under 1-inch pieces. In a small dish, whisk honey and 2 tablespoons warm water.
    Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat.  Melt coconut oil and add banana slices to skillet.  Fry each side for about 2 minutes (4 minutes total).  I used a spatula to carefully flip them over.
    Remove skillet from heat and pour honey mixture on top.  Mixture should reduce slightly. 
    Transfer to plate and sprinkle with cinnamon.


NOTE - Bananas should be slightly green (not brown) before making this dish. Also, the more liquid used, the mushier the banana. I made this dish without honey/water as well and they are crispier.

    Your version above looks good… Try plantain bananas next time… It will keep it’s shape. If using plantain, use the just ripe bananas to get a sweeter and softer texture.

    This looks amazing! I love banana chips when they are fresh, and this looks even better!
