Hey yall! Welcome to the second month of #blogfilmfood! This month our month inspiration is: Karate Kid! Brenda from Meal Planning Magic was in charge of the selection this month and I have to say, its a good one! I broke out the big guns for this one – caramel banana wontons!
I had never used wonton wrappers before so I hunted some down in my grocery store. [They were around the salad/lettuce/fresh produce at my store just fyi.] Then I had to figure out how to cook them. The package says to either add them to slightly boiling water or to fry them. So of course I tried to bake them first.
Yea, totally not the way to go. There is a reason they don’t have that option on the package – it turns them into cardboard! So making these “healthy” by baking them was out. I tried the boiling water method next. Nope. Came out like soggy goo. It wasn’t pretty. [Although they were tasty! I might have eaten two soggy caramel banana wontons. No judgies.]
Finally I gave in and followed instructions and fried them. Best idea ever! Or maybe the best idea ever was to drizzle them with salted caramel sauce. All I know is that these didn’t last long at our house. I actually had to make more for pictures. My mom came over and ate the last two and then said “Dang, I hope you didn’t need to take pictures of these.” That’s ok mom, I can now say these caramel banana wontons are mom tasted and approved!
Caramel Banana Wontons
- 2 bananas, sliced
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 12 wonton wrappers
- oil for frying
- caramel sauce for drizzling
I found the best way to seal the wontons is make a triangle shape using a paintbrush and water.

These are just what I need to make with the hundreds of bananas my trees are producing in my backyard! And I love cooking with wonton and egg roll wrappers. Just tried making egg rolls for the first time last week – really easy and really good. I love your story on the baking and boiling – sounds like something I would do. lol Thanks for sharing on Totally Talented Tuesday.
Ohh yea.. these are perfect for extra bananas! And cheap to make too! (The wrappers were only a few bucks). Hope you enjoy them if you try em!
I once tried baking crab rangoon. Nope. It’s really hard for me to get wonton wrappers to crisp in the oven.
What a great dessert! Thank you for sharing.
Mine came out like cardboard in the oven! I had to fry these to get them to work. And now Im craving crab ragoons. lol!

Hi Kelley! Thanks for sharing with us at Marvelous Monday – I’ll be featuring these on my blog Sunday Night – pinned also! Such a great idea!!
Woohoo! Thanks so much Deb! Ill be back tomorrow to check it out!
Did you spray the wrappers with cooking spray or butter (when baking)? Mine crisp right up!!!! These look fabulous!!
I didn’t spray them with anything when I tried to bake them. I put them in a muffin tin and they were hard as rocks! Should I have sprayed them!? lol

For the banana in the saucepan are you cooking it until it becomes a paste? Just curing if you keep the bananas as pieces are try to get a mixture / paste to put in
I left mine a little chunky, but if you prefer smooth that works too!
