Total Time


¾ cup yellow cornmeal½ cup all-purpose flour1 tsp baking powder½ tsp salt½ tsp ground chipotle chili (see Ingredient note) or cayenne pepper1 tsp ground chipotle chile1 ¼ cup roughly mashed bananas (about 3 medium)1 large egg2 Tbsp milk or buttermilk2 Tbsp canola oil, divided


1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

2. Whisk cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and chipotle (or cayenne) in a medium bowl. Mix banana, egg and milk (or buttermilk) in another medium bowl. Add the cornmeal mixture to the banana mixture and stir until just incorporated.

3. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium; using 2 tablespoons of batter for each, space 5 fritters evenly in the pan. Cook until golden brown, 30 seconds to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Cook a second batch with the remaining oil and batter, adjusting heat to prevent burning.

4. Transfer the fritters to the oven and bake until puffed and firm to the touch, 8 to 10 minutes.

Ingredient Note: Chipotle peppers are dried, smoked jalapeno peppers, often used to add heat and a smoky flavor to foods. Ground chipotle can be found in the specialty-spice section of most supermarkets.
