These fried bananas make a delicious snack…or dessert!
(This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure for more info.)
I had some bananas sitting on the counter for a couple of days. I usually grab one for breakfast or a snack during the week.
I still had four left. I knew I had to do something with them. That’s when I thought about making fried bananas. I’m so happy I did because they were delicious!
These fried bananas are easy to make and low in points!
The only points in this recipe come from the butter that I used to fry them in. I only used 1/2 tablespoon of butter which was 3 Freestyle points.
If you want this recipe to be 0 points you can use no-stick cooking spray instead of butter. Personally, I think the butter gives the fried bananas such a delicious flavor, I’m willing to spend the points.
The recipe uses two bananas. I did not eat all of the bananas. I ate about one point worth.
Then I had a brilliant idea. Why not add the bananas to some ice cream!?
It was sooooo good!!! I used 1/2 cup Halo Top caramel macchiato light ice cream, four fried bananas and some fat-free whipped cream. It was only 3 Freestyle points!
Slicing up the bananas is quite easy, but it reminded me of the banana slicer on Amazon.Hutzler 571 Banana Slicer
Have you ever read the reviews on this banana slicer? They are hilarious!!! People are pretty creative.
I actually do have a strawberry slicer and I love it, but I have not bought the banana slicer. I just love the reviews!

Yield: 1-4 Servings (3 Freestyle points for entire recipe)
- 2 ripe bananas

Peel and slice the bananas. I sliced each banana into 12 pieces.
Add the cinnamon and artificial sweetener to a small bowl and mix together.
Melt butter in a frying pan.
Sprinkle half of the cinnamon mixture on one side of the bananas. Add the bananas to the frying pan, seasoned side down.
Add the rest of the cinnamon mixture to the other side of the bananas. Let bananas cook 1-2 minutes, then flip.
Let the bananas cook 1-2 more minutes.
