Bonelos Aga, fried to a golden brown…..

4 RIPE Bananas, mashed
1 Egg, slightly beaten
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 cup Sugar OR adjust to your taste
1 cup + 2 Tbsp. All purpose Flour
1 tsp. Baking powder
Oil, for deep frying

Peel then mash the bananas using a fork.









Add the egg and beat until well blended.










Add the sugar and vanilla.  Mix together until well combined.  Add the flour and baking powder.  Combine well. Batter will resemble thick pancake batter…










Pour vegetable oil in a deep frying pan about 2-inches deep.  Heat on Medium heat.   Using a cookie scooper or two small spoons, add batter into hot oil.  Most times it’ll turn on it’s own but fry until golden on one side then turn to brown the other side.  Fry until golden, drain on a paper-towel lined colander.  Cool before serving.

  1. I never put eggs in my bonelos aga, and I use a hand mixer, and the flour I use amounts when I feel the consistency is right for frying.

  2. I made these last night but I substituted honey for the sugar and it came out soooo yummy! Thank you for sharing these recipes!

  3. This has become my go-to recipe! Thank you for sharing. There are never any leftovers. In fact, the batch never lasts more than an hour after it’s been fried!
