  • 2

    bananas, cup up small

  • 2 oz
    (60 g)

    slivered almonds, crushed

  • 1/2 tsp.
    (2 mL)

    ground cinnamon

  • won ton wrappers

  • water as needed

  • peanut oil as needed


In a bowl, combine stuffing ingredients. Set aside.

Lay 12 won ton wrappers on a working surface. Moisten edges of each wrapper with water. Place 2 tsp. (10 mL) of stuffing in the centre wrapper and cover with another set at an angle to create a star. Transfer won tons to a platter lined with waxed paper, keeping them well apart. Repeat until there are no more wrappers or stuffing.

Meanwhile, in a large pot heat oil until it bubbles. Immerse about 5 won tons at a time and fry about 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Repeat until all won tons have been fried. Keep warm and serve.
