Pan Fried Cinnamon Sugar Bananas

Do you know just how good bananas are for you?

I read that we should all be eating two bananas a day, especially people with anxiety, high blood pressure, heart problems, and stress (and who doesn’t have that?).  Bananas are one of the few fruits that contain the amino acid, tryptophan, plus vitamin B6.  The two nutrients together are a natural chemical that is known to relieve depression.

That’s why these are the perfect morning and evening snack!  In a about 10 minutes you can be eating a delicious sweet drool-worthy (healthy) snack.  This recipe transforms the boring old bananas to something you can serve to dinner guests over ice cream for an elegant dessert.

It’s preferable to use bananas that are just on the verge of being ripe.  I tried making this with very ripe ones and they just feel apart.  They still tasted delicious and I mixed them in my oatmeal, but to stand up to yogurt or ice cream the texture is much better if they are a bit on the firmer side.
