Two words- “Luscious Goodness” .
6 bananas (yellow with a little green), the firmer the better.
1 cup rice flour (or all purpose flour)
1/4 cup tapioca starch (or organic corn starch)
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tbs. black sesame seeds, toasted
3/4 cup water
4-6 cups coconut oil for frying
Warm honey to drizzle
Vanilla bean ice cream
Your favorite chocolate sauce
In a large bowl combine the dry ingredients -flour, baking soda, sugar, salt, and coconut ( except sesame seeds)
Add water and mix well. Mix the batter until thick.
In a large deep stock pot, a wok, or deep fryer slowly heat coconut oil to 375’F.
While waiting for oil to heat up, peel and cut bananas into bite sized pieces , dip each banana into the batter and coat thoroughly.
Carefully place the coated banana into the hot oil. Deep fry until they turns golden brown and crispy. Turning once or twice while frying- about one to two minute to cook evenly. Remove banana from oil, and drain on paper towel.
Drizzle with warm honey and chocolate sauce and serve with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream – top with toasted sesame seeds.
Note: The bananas come out of the fryer very hot, so let them cool a little before serving.
