Smoked Banana Walnut Fritters

The goal with using smoke as a layer of flavor for a sweet dish brings out more of an essence of smoke rather than that robust burst of smoke you may crave when smoking meats. Sometimes it's just like bringing a touch of outdoors, inside, when only a few smoked ingredients are added to a recipe. Imagine the smokiness that gets into the Dutch oven cinnamon rolls when enjoying them around a campfire. If you can't enjoy Smoked Banana Walnut Fritters in camp, bring the essence of the outdoors into the kitchen for this delightful treat.


Smoked Banana Walnut Fritters

2 large bananas

1 cup halved walnuts

1 egg

1/4 cup half & half

1 cup flour

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

Coconut or canola oil for pan for deep frying

Smokehouse Alder Wood Chips


Preheat Little or Big Chief Smoker 10 minutes. Add Smokehouse Alder Chips to the chip pan, filling half way. Place peeled, halved (lengthwise) bananas and walnuts on Drying/Grilling Screens atop smoker racks.

Smoke 15 minutes for a light smoke flavor or add more chips and smoke up to 1 hour for a heavier smoke flavor. Remove from smoker, and continue with the recipe or place in an airtight container and refrigerate until ready to use.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk egg and half and half until frothy. Cut smoked bananas into small chunks and roughly chop smoked walnuts.
