Ingredients

1
banana, diced
2 Tbsp
chopped walnuts
1 Tbsp
brown sugar
1/4 tsp
cinnamon
1/4 tsp
fresh nutmeg
tiny pinch of salt
12
wonton wrappers
frying oil (i use grapeseed, but canola is another good choice.)
warmed nutella for dipping

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix together the banana,nuts,spices and dash of salt. Place wonton wrappers out to make an assembly line. Get a pastry brush with a small dish of water ready. You may also sprinkle some cornstarch on a plate so the prepared wontons won’t stick before they are fried.
2
Place one tablespoon of the banana mixture on the center of each wonton. Don’t be tempted to overfill,you will just create a frustrating mess.Use your pastry brush to place water on the sides of the wrappers. Fold them over into triangles and pinch to secure them.
3
Place them onto the cornstarched plate until ready to fry. If not frying right away, cover with plastic wrap so wontons don’t dry out. Pour about a 1/4 inch of oil in a large skillet and heat until the oil is shimmering over a medium high flame.
4
Place the wontons in the pan in batches. Turning when golden(about 1 1/2 minutes on each side). When done, place them on a cooling rack so excess oil can drip off. You can dust with powdered sugar just before serving. A favorite dipping sauce is warmed nutella.
