Prep time 20 minutes
Cook time 20 minutes
Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 8 frozen spring roll wrappers, partially thawed
  • 4 firm ripe bananas
  • 1 tbsp water
  • Olive oil cooking spray

Method

  1. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Place 1 spring roll wrapper onto a board, with one corner pointing towards you. Cover remaining sheets with a clean, damp tea towel.
  2. Peel and trim ends off 1 banana, then cut in half crossways. Place 1 piece of banana across the corner of the wrapper closest to you. Sprinkle with a heaped teaspoon cinnamon sugar. Brush edges lightly with water. Roll up, folding in the sides to enclose the banana. Place on a tray. Cover with a clean tea towel. Repeat to make the remaining spring rolls.
  3. Preheat the Air fryer to 200C. Spray the spring rolls with oil. Place 4 rolls into the Air fryer basket. Cook for 8-10 minutes or until pastry is golden. Remove to a plate. Repeat with remaining spring rolls. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon sugar.
  4. Serve warm rolls with ice-cream if desired.
