I love individual desserts. Seriously, there is just something about having your own mini-dessert all to yourself that is just so fun. Well, that and because it’s automatic portion control. (If you have a
little humongous sweet tooth like me, that is a good thing!!)
Today I found myself wanting a little something sweet (always) and checking in my fridge to see what I could make. It just so happens, I have a package of egg roll wrappers that I needed to use. But hmm, what to stuff into the wrappers…. How about a banana?
Time to relive a dessert I enjoyed at P.F. Chang’s: a banana spring roll. Only different because mine are not fried and I didn’t have spring roll wrappers.
Anyways, so yes, recreating amazing-ness. And it was SO easy!! Feel free to serve with vanilla bean ice cream and caramel sauce. Or you can serve with a little melted chocolate, as seen in the above picture.
Baked Banana Egg Rolls
Makes 4 rolls
- 2 medium bananas
- 4 egg roll wrappers
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar
- 1/2 Tbsp buttery spread, melted
Peel bananas and cut in half across the middle of the banana (not length-wise).
Lay one wrapper out on a clean plate.
Brush a small amount of melted butter on the wrapper.
Roll 1 piece of banana in brown sugar, dusting off most of the excess. You just want a little sugar along the outsides of the banana, but not so much that it’s caked on.
Lay banana in lower 1/3 of the egg roll wrapper. Roll wrapper around the banana, fold in corners, and continue rolling the rest of the way. Dampen loose ends of the wrapper with a little water and press to seal.
Repeat with all wrappers and banana pieces.
Place on a baking sheet sprayed with a little nonstick cooking spray. Lightly spray the tops of each egg roll (helps it brown a bit) and bake at 425 F for about 10 minutes or until browned.
Allow to cool slightly before serving.
Wow, typing out the instructions makes this sound more complicated, but I promise it’s super simple and can be made in a snap! And best of all, no frying and no oil!
Now, I’m off to eat the 2 yummy rolls in the picture….. 🙂
