  • ½ cup coarsely chopped pecans, toasted
  • 12 banana chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
  • In a second medium mixing bowl, whisk together bananas, egg, and oil.
  • Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients and, using a rubber spatula, blend until ingredients are just combined.
  • Fold in pecans.
