Turon (Filipino Banana Egg Rolls)

As a mestiza Filipina (that means half Filipina, which I am on my mom’s side), I find myself being more and more intrigued by the native cuisine as I get older. I love going to Asian markets to peruse the different products! The other day, I saw these cute baby bananas and thought they would make excellent turon, or Filipino banana egg rolls. While regular bananas or plantains are usually used with brown sugar and jackfruit, these little bananas were the perfect size for the wonton wrappers. We also decided to go a little crazy with the fillings, so we did a few with plain brown sugar, some with peanut butter and jelly, and some with peanut butter and chocolate. So good! These sweet bananas and other fillings get a crunchy wrapper for a delicious spin on the traditional Filipino snack.
