Okay, so maybe desserts are the last thing you want to think about right now. I know! I totally get that! But one year I had banana wontons on New Year’s Eve and now I always associate them with the New Year. So this is my New Year’s recipe, posted a little bit in advance.
The best thing about these wontons, aside from how flipping easy they are to make, is that it’s the kind of dessert that seems like it would be high in calories, but it’s totally not. Each wonton is only about 30 calories (depending on the brand of wonton wrappers you use), so a serving of four is completely doable as a dessert or snack. I used to make these by spraying them with my oil mister and while that works out well, I’ve found that brushing them with melted coconut oil is even better–they are thisclose to having the same crispy texture as deep-fried wontons.
But since this is a New Year’s post, healthy banana wontons would be a wee bit disappointing, right? So if you want to go all out, I’ve included a vegan caramel sauce recipe too–a coconut caramel sauce recipe, to be exact. The coconut-y flavor is the perfect pairing for the banana wontons. And if you really want to go all out, serve the wontons and coconut caramel sauce with some vanilla ice cream.
(If you are making these for New Year’s Eve, you really need to serve them with ice cream. Your diet starts on the 1st, remember?)Print
These crispy baked banana wontons are perfect by themselves, but they’re even better when served with ice cream and coconut caramel sauce!
Many supermarket brands of wonton wrappers contain egg, but eggless brands are easy to find at Asian markets. You can also make your own wonton wrappers–here’s a vegan wonton wrapper recipe from Food.com.
