$5 Dessert: Brown Sugar-Banana Spring Rolls

  • Prep Time 0:10
  • Cook Time 0:10
  • Estimated Cost $5.00

This is one of those desserts that impresses everyone—and for good reason. These spring rolls are sophisticated-looking and bursting with flavor…so don’t bother telling anyone that they were ridiculously easy to make and cost you almost nothing. Just bask in the praise and thank me later.


  • 4 large egg roll wrappers $2
  • 1 banana $0.50
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar Pantry
  • 4 tbsp shredded coconut $1
  • cinnamon $1.50 for 1 oz.
  • vegetable oil Pantry


  1. Slice the banana into fourths lengthwise so you have four long pieces of banana. Slice the long pieces in half so you have eight short, thin pieces of banana.
  2. Lay a wonton wrapper on a clean, dry surface. Make a little mound with 1 tbsp of coconut and one tbsp of brown sugar in the center of the wrap. Lay 2 banana slices on top of the mound, sprinkle a dash of cinnamon on the banana and roll up, tucking in the ends of the wrapper, as though making a little burrito. Repeat with the remaining wontons.
  3. Heat about an inch of oil in a medium frying pan over high heat. Cook the spring rolls for 1-2 minutes on each side until golden brown and crisp. Drain on paper towels.
  4. Serve sliced on the bias, garnished with a little more cinnamon.

awesome recipe, can’t wait to try it. only critism is that pantry items are NOT FREE! if you wanna talk budget, “pantry” items make up a good portion of the grocery budget so get real with your pricing, please.

robin, the pantry items are assuming you have “the $50 pantry.” you can find the ingredients and prices for each of them in gabi’s similarly titled article. taking that into consideration, i’d say the prices are pretty accurate.
