Fried Bananas for Chanukkah
Here is a quick and easy dessert for Chanukkah and also healthy! You can make this with graham cracker crumbs and/or shredded coconut. I make this gluten-free using gluten-free graham cracker crumbs. (Coconut is naturally gluten-free). This is the perfect ending to your Chanukkah feast. Young children will enjoy getting the banana slices ready for frying. An added bonus: the coconut oil leaves a wonderful scent in the house! Happy Chanukkah, Chag Chanukkah Sameach! The Recipe
