- 2 medium bananas
- 1½ tablespoons powdered peanut butter
- 2 teaspoons creamy peanut butter, divided
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 4 square egg roll wrappers
- 1½ tablespoons whipped butter
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1. Slice bananas in half widthwise, for a total of 4 pieces.
2. In a small bowl, combine both types of peanut butter with 1½ tablespoons water. Add honey, and mix until smooth and uniform.
3. Lay an egg roll wrapper flat on a dry surface. Place a banana half a little below the center of the wrapper. Spread 1/4 of the peanut butter mixture over top and sides of the banana.
4. Moisten all four edges by dabbing your fingers in water and going over the edges smoothly. Fold the sides about 3/4 inch toward the middle to keep banana in place. Roll up the wrapper around the banana, and continue to the top. Seal with a dab of water. Repeat to make three more egg rolls.
5. In a small microwave-safe bowl, mix butter with cinnamon. Microwave for 10 seconds, or until melted. Evenly brush over egg rolls.
6. Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Rotating occasionally, cook egg rolls until golden brown and crispy, about 6 minutes.
