Jamaican Banana Fritters

Use your overripe bananas to make this delicious treat. The problem with banana fritters is that they are usually deep fried and loaded with fat! However the lower calorie recipe makes a low fat fritter by mashing ripe bananas and making a batter, then pan frying them with a little butter flavoured spray.
