These Banana Beignets are a great twist on a classic! Start your day with this wonderful treat.

Beignets have been a Southern treat for years.  If you are in New Orleans don’t ever miss having some of their beignets and coffee in the French Quarter.  Banana beignets are easy and delicious.  Make these anytime you want a treat to go with coffee and serve to friends and family.  I never have any of these banana beignets left over.  Grownups and children love this recipe.  This is a good way to use up bananas, too.  The more powdered sugar you sprinkle on the better!  Whenever I make these banana beignets I cannot leave them alone.  I think they are one of the best sweet breakfast foods ever.  Your family will love them.  A great recipe project to make with your children and grandchildren.
