Banana and Caramel Filo Rolls - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff to know in the blurb!

Whether you’re entertaining family and friends, or just looking for a quick dessert that looks like it’s straight from a restaurant kitchen, these Banana and Caramel Filo Rolls are just the ticket.

We’ve used filo pastry to help give these rolls a nice crunch without adding loads of extra calories, which means that they’re perfect if you’re counting calories or following a plan like Weight Watchers. It’s lighter than traditional pastry and we love how easy it is to use. You can use it for wrapping, scrunching and topping – the possibilities are endless!

We love using fruit in dessert, and bananas are so versatile. If you fancy a change from Banana Bread, try using under-ripe bananas in this delicious dessert. It’s really important to use firm, slightly under-ripe bananas for this recipe, as if you use ripe ones then they may ooze out from the filo parcels!

The 50% reduced sugar dessert topping sauce is the perfect dipping texture and sweetness and tastes sooo good, but if you’re not a fan then don’t worry: you could also serve them with a low fat chocolate sauce, sweetened quark or even our Custard – delish!

What does the 50% less sugar caramel dessert topping look like? I’ve tried Asda and Morrisons but they don’t sell it.
