Banana Lumpia

Connie "Kiyu" Guerrero


These are absolutely amazing! I have to make them in small batches because I can not stop eating. They are great for a dessert or to use as a party for a finger food. I will be serving them at my party this coming Friday night, and I am certain they will be a hit.

    cooking bananas (4 lengthwise slices each)
  • 1 pkg
    spring roll/eggroll wrappers
  • 1 c
    brown sugar, light
  • 1 tsp

How to Make Banana Lumpia


  1. Peel and slice each banana into 4 lengthwise stripes. Place them on a plate. Open and separate the wrappers and set aside.
  2. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon on a separate platter. Next, coat the banana on each side with the sugar mix. Then wrap each coated banana like a burrito. Set aside. (repeat for the rest of your sliced bananas)
  3. Heat about 3cups of oil on a medium sauce pan or in a deep fryer. Then reduce the heat to medium low. Drop in 3 or 4 into the hot oil until the wrap turn golden brown on each side.
  4. Using a thong, carefully pick up the banana from the pan and place them on a lined paper towel platter. Let cool and serve.
