Pastillas de Saging

Here’s another banana-based snack the whole family would surely love. I have yet to try this recipe.



3 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana with peelings. You can use Saba or Lacatan for this recipe.
1 1/2 cups second-class brown sugar
8 tablespoon butter or margarine
3 tablespoon all-purpose flour
Ground peanuts (optional)


  1. Mix and mash banana fruit and peelings.
  2. Add sugar. Place mixture in a pan.
  3. Cook until thick enough to cut.
  4. Stir continuously to prevent scorching.
  5. Add margarine. Add all-purpose flour.
  6. Transfer to a board and flatten with a rolling pin.
  7. Sprinkle with peanuts. Cut into desired size.
