Being a diabetic I have to be really careful on some of the special treats and snacks that I make. Most of the time they are healthier snacks but sometimes it's much sweeter treats. The other day when I say some great looking plantain, I started thinking of Banana Roll aka Turon (tagalog term for the treat). I bought one and stopped by the asian market to get the wrapper. In addition to this two ingredient, I decided to get a can of Jackfruit to add to this treat and make it more yummy. The combination of banana, jackfruit and brown sugar is just like fire works when you take a bite of this roll. It's really easy to make with only a few ingredient. The bad part is that it's deep fried and of course it's sweet. Oh bother, I started with only half the plantain and end up with eight rolls. I ate four for my evening snack and the rest I ate for breakfast the next day. I am not going to like but you can just guess how high my blood sugar results. Doing this once a year is not a bad thing. I had the craving and I dealt with it. Who knows when I will make this again. Maybe when my sister comes to visit, it's possible we will both crave for this tempting roll.
