  • 4 very ripe saba bananas split vertically into halves
  • 8 tablespoons chunky peanut butter
  • 8 spring roll wrappers
  • vegetable oil for frying


  • Arrange the banana halves on a tray, cut side up. Spread a tablespoonful or so of peanut butter on each of them.
  • Place a banana half on a spring roll wrapper, peanut butter side down (Speedy says it’s to make sure that the wrapper is thickest on the part with the peanut butter as an extra insurance that the peanut butter won’t soak through the wrapper and ooze out during frying).
  • Wrap the banana half (see how to wrap spring rolls). Make sure you wrap them tightly and that the wrappers are free from holes and tears. Seal them completely.
  • Repeat for the rest of the banana halves.
  • Heat enough cooking oil in a frying pan to reach a depth of at least two inches.
  • When wisps of smoke start to float on the surface of the oil, fry the spring rolls. In batches, if your frying pan is not that large. Roll them in the hot oil for even browning.
  • Drain the fried spring rolls and serve hot.
