Introduction: How to Make Banana Golden Pillow
A lot of children like to eat sweet snacks or desserts but their parents may worry about their children getting fat after eating sweet food. There are many kinds of bakery items and desserts that are made with bananas such as banana muffins, banana bread, banana cheesecake and others. Moreover, many Asian restaurants sell this dessert but the banana spring rolls are fried which are oily and unhealthy. These desserts made with banana can be too fatty for children who enjoy eating snacks or desserts. Thus, in order to satisfy their cravings, making Golden Pillows is the best choice ever! I named the banana spring roll as Golden Pillows because they look like pillows and are golden-yellowish. Banana spring rolls are a kind of snack or dessert that can be made easily. This can be prepared in 15 minutes and ready to be served in 45-50 minutes! Basic cooking skills and having some common sense on safety precautions are required.
