Bonelos Aga (Ripe Banana Donuts)

This is a favorite of Tom's ( my husband ). I've only made these once before and had never seen or tried them so when I got done making my very first batch I thought I'd done it all completely wrong. They didn't look or taste like any donuts I'd ever had. My husband came home from work, very excited to see I'd made these donuts and gobbled them all up saying they were great! That was a few years ago and he's been begging for us to make some more ever since. Well, today was the day and our daughter wanted to learn so I let her do most of the work. They are very simple:
  • You will need: 10 to 12 ripe bananas.
  • 1 cup flour
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons sugar

Peel and thoroughly mash bananas. Add flour and sugar. Mix until smooth. Drop by tablespoon into hot fat. Once browned on all sides, drain on brown paper or paper towels and roll in sugar.

You may need to beat off sneaky fingers until they are cooled enough to eat.


  1. Oh, a sweet dessert that does not have milk or butter. These look so good, did you save any for us?

  2. those look delicious! thank you for the recipe!

  3. Can you half the recipe? I have 4 ripe bananas right now and is that an electiric skillet or wok you are using?

  4. We only had 4 bananas this time around so only added 1/4 cup flour and 1 1/2 Tblsp sugar - so yes, you can 1/2 the recipe. We used our wok - but you could fry them in a skillet with oil too.
