Banana Fritters

Banana Fritters - Quirky Cooking

These banana fritters are great for breakfast when you’ve got lots of ripe bananas you need to use up.  A friend of ours has a roadside fruit stall, and we get about half a box of bananas most weeks for free… so we eat lots of banana ice-cream, smoothies and banana fritters!  Sometimes I use spelt flour, sometimes buckwheat – like pancakes, they’re pretty versatile.  We also like them with half banana, half berries – delicious with a little pure maple syrup drizzled over!  The kids eat any leftovers cold for a snack at morning tea time.

    I just loved your kitchen , my kitchen too is as small as yours but i still love my kitchen , but unlike you i have lots of stuff which makes it further congested.
    i would like to know what are the two appliances on the right and left of the sink and dont you use a gas stove?

    Hi Mahek, there are two dehydrators in that photo, but they aren’t usually there, just when I’m drying stuff (eg. sprouted buckwheat/fruit). My Thermomix is on the right next to the pantry cupboard – it takes the place of most kitchen appliances so my kitchen isn’t crowded with them, thankfully! The gas burners (there are two) are on the left next to the wall stove – you can’t really see them in the photo.
    Jo 🙂

    would love to hear what you do with the sprouted buckwheat jo? presumably you buy unhulled?

    and bananas are so expensive at the moment i am deciding what other fruit to use 🙂

    I love to make buckwheat granola, raw pie crusts, bliss balls with the sprouted buckwheat & apricots in it… there’s lots you can do.

    We still get bananas at a good price here, and even got some given to me from someone’s backyard the other day 🙂 But you can use blueberries – they’re yummy in these fritters.

    Jo 🙂

    Jo these were amazing. My man ate 7 they were that good. Your bananas must be the big QLD type (LOL). It took 7 bananas for me to make 500g

    I love these with bananas, but I tried making them with 500g peeled apples, chopped in the tm, and some cinnamon and they were fabulous too. Thanks for the great recipe

    This is such a fantastic versatile recipe. We have tried it with mangoes, bananas and bananas and blueberries and the kids have loved them all. They like them with the fruit quite chunky in the fritters. I have also replaced the buckwheat/spelt with banana flour and recently used 90g banana flour with the rest the banana flour smoothie mix and it was awesome!
