These banana fritters are the perfect way to use up your overripe bananas. They are sweet, but not overly sweet as they do not contain any added sugar. They are soft, fluffy with a rich flavor from the bananas. Enjoy for breakfast, snack time or dessert.
Peel the bananas and place in a large bowl. Mash with a wooden spoon or potato masher to form a paste (it will have lumps in it and that's okay).
Add the rest of the ingredients into the bowl except the oil for frying. Mix until just combine to form a batter. The batter will be light and drippy.
Place oil in a pan up to 3 inches then heat up on high heat to 365 degrees Fahrenheit. Reduce heat to medium (this is important because very hot oil will result in the fritters burning on the outside without cooking through. Place spoonfuls of the batter into the pan. Do not overcrowd the pan. Let the fritters cook until golden. Flip to the other side and let them cook until golden too. Remove and place on paper towel to absorb excess oil. Repeat process with the rest of the fritters.
Enjoy for breakfast with some tea, or as a snack, or serve with chocolate sauce as a dessert.
