Like Chrissy's famous banana bread in fried dough form!

We are always trying to find ways to eat more of Chrissy's ultimate banana bread. The recipe from her second cookbook, 'Cravings: Hungry for More,' is famous for a reason—it is the most fluffy, moist (sorry) banana bread you'll ever try with different mix-ins to add extra textures and flavors. After turning it into Banana Bread Pancake Bites, we have transformed it again into an even more craveable form: FRIED DOUGH! These French-style, New Orleans-inspired beignets have all the warm, toasty flavors of the original banana bread but with lots of deep-fried crunch. For extra decadence, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and thank us later.

For the beignets:

  • 2 cups flour

  • ½ cup sugar

  • ¼ cup light brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 ½  teaspoon fine sea salt

  • 1 egg

  • 2 large very ripe bananas, mashed (1 cup mashed)

  • ½ cup chopped toasted walnuts

  • ½ cup milk

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more for frying and oiling spoons 

For dusting:

  • ½ cup confectioners’ sugar

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • + Flaky sea salt
