Spiced Pumpkin-Banana Fritters

I loved banana fritters growing up. If there was a banana that had gone past it’s prime…it definitely was going to become a fritter of some sort. Recently, my family and I picked some pumpkins at Wayside farm and got the most gorgeous pumpkins.  I may have too many pumpkins on my hands now. What does that mean? Well, pumpkin recipes of course. How about a pumpkin-banana fritter?

I love how the edges of the fritter get dark and crispy once fried. The best part!

  1. I love anything with pumpkin but never thought of combining it with banana. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

  2. Home Decor DIY Craft says:

    Oh Lisa, sounds delicious! Like French toast, with healthy additions. Inspirational. Thank you for sharing. I will dress up my French toast next time with something else other than maple sirup… although… ???!! Love my maple sirup! ~ Rose

  3. This sounds so yummy and a change from all the pumpkin recipes I have been seeing! A great way to use thise old bananas too! Pinned!

    • Yes. Some of the pumpkin recipes are getting redundant. I enjoy going a little “out of the box” with my originals. I really hope that you enjoy the fritters.

  4. SO glad I saw this, making for dinner tonight! Looks wonderful. -Dawn @ We Call It Junkin
