AIP Banana Coconut Fritters (Vegan, low-FODMAP)

AIP Banana Coconut Fritters (Vegan, low-FODMAP)


A fun alternative to pancakes, these AIP Banana Coconut Fritters are perfect for breakfast, as an afternoon snack, or a warm dessert topped with coconut ice cream.

Inspired by Jamaican banana fritters, these paleo banana fritters are first baked then lightly fried in coconut oil. Coconut flour is used to bind together the mashed banana (also, no added sweeteners), making the fritters gluten-free, vegan, and Whole30 compliant.

Ingredients for AIP Banana Cinnamon Fritters:

  • Bananas
  • Coconut flour
  • Coconut oil
  • Cinnamon
  • Sea salt
  • Vanilla powder (optional)

RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Keep the fritters small (about 1 to 1.5 tbsp) and be sure to bake the batter first before frying. These two steps help keep the fritters intact and in one piece.
  • If following low-FODMAP, make sure the bananas aren’t ripe (should have a little green still showing in the peel) – learn more here.
  • Try topping them with a little Maldon sea salt (delicious!)
  • Fritters are best served warm. If there are any leftovers, store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 3 and reheat on the stovetop.

Ingredients
  • 2 medium bananas
  • 3 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/2 cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla powder (optional)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil (plus additional for frying)
Directions
  • Step 1 Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Step 2 In a medium bowl, add peeled bananas and mash with a fork until smooth.
  • Step 3 Add in the coconut flour, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla powder (if using – optional). Mix until well-combined.
  • Step 4 Add coconut oil into banana mixture, stirring until fully combined.
  • Step 5 Using a spoon, measure out roughly 1 to 1-1/2 tbsp of batter and divide evenly onto the baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10 minutes and remove from the oven.
  • Step 6 Heat up a non-stick griddle or frying pan on medium-heat with a little coconut oil for frying.
  • Step 7 Once the pan is hot, gently place the baked banana fritters onto the pan. Be sure to not overcrowd so they are easy to flip.
  • Step 8 Turn down heat to low-medium and wait roughly 3 minutes (color should be golden brown) before flipping and repeat.
  • Step 9 Once the fritters are nicely browned on both sides, place on a cooling rack.
  • Step 10 Serve and enjoy while warm.
