These cinnamon-sugar wontons are stuffed with an amazing surprise.

Definitely eat these baked wonton cookies fresh out of the oven.  The outside is crispy, and the inside is a delicious, warm mix of banana and almond butter.

 

Baked Wonton Cookies

 

Ingredients (for one serving):

 

  • 3 Nasoya wonton crisps
  • 1/4 of a banana, cut into three small pieces
  • 1 tablespoon of almond butter, separated
  • Cinnamon
  • Brown Sugar

 

Directions:

 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Lay out wontons on a plate
  • Fill inside of wontons with small piece of banana and drizzle of almond butter
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon

  • Using a wet finger, seal wonton into triangle.  Then, fold in each of the ends
  • Wet outside of wonton and press on cinnamon and brown sugar
  • Place on generous cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 5 minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy!

 

These wontons were the perfect way to cure my post-dinner sweet tooth!  And they were pretty healthy, too.  πŸ™‚

All we did today was lay on the couch (well, I laid on a yoga mat on the floor) and watch TV.  We also took the dogs on a short walk.  :)  But that was pretty much the extent of my movement!

 

Mid-afternoon snack was a Greek yogurt, pumpkin, Grape Nut, oatmeal, and strawberry bowl.

And dinner was a huge pile of roasted veggie and potatoes.  The mix included Brussel sprouts, broccoli, and carrots.

There is something so satisfying about a huge pile of roasted veg.  The Husband commented the other day that it feels like we make roasted veg every Sunday night, and that he loves it.  Reminds him of a traditional English roast!

Of course, we had those amazing baked wonton cookies for dessert.  πŸ™‚

    Those are the YUMMIEST looking wontons ever!

    Happy Sunday πŸ™‚

  • Whitney@Whitinspired April 25, 2010, 7:02 pm

    Those look sooo yummy! Except I would take out the banana and ab and add chocolate. Because if I’m eating dessert, there must be chocolate in it.

  • Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter April 25, 2010, 7:03 pm

    Definitely a heaping pile of veggies is the best! I love how absolutely filling they are.

  • Angharad April 25, 2010, 7:04 pm

    I’ve become completely obsessed with roasted broccoli recently! It’s just so effing good! As are roasted brussels sprouts. Totally reminds me of english sunday roasts as well πŸ™‚

  • Lauren @ A Fit Foodie April 25, 2010, 7:06 pm

    And I’ll be making those soon!! Those wontons are insane and involve everything I love!! Super tempting! But I think we might put some Nutella in there instead of AB!!! AHHHHH!!!

  • Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg April 25, 2010, 7:11 pm

    Ooh, those look really good! And beautiful photograph too!

  • lauren @ Eater not a runner April 25, 2010, 7:14 pm

    Those looks so good! I’ve been eating raw oatmeal and LOVE it. Seriously better than granola if you ask me!

  • Gracie @ Girl Meets Health April 25, 2010, 7:14 pm

    Look at you with all of these amazing recipes! I’m loving the use of won-ton wrappers, yum.

  • Julia April 25, 2010, 7:15 pm

    I just bookmarked this because it sounds and looks delicious. I wonder if you could bake the “wonton sweet potato and black bean ravioli” you just posted, so they wouldn’t be so soggy (instead of frying them of course.)

    I’m hungry now!

    You are coming up with some fabulous baked creations lately, lady! These look like a must try.

  • Heather (Heather's Dish) April 25, 2010, 7:20 pm

    those cookies are so cute! they definitely look like something that would be fun for a girl’s night (well, any night really…)

    i agree that roasted veggies are so satisfying! plus they have so much flavor πŸ™‚

  • Julie @savvyeats April 25, 2010, 7:20 pm

    So cute! The restaurant we are getting our wedding “cake” (ie: chocolate chip cookie dough egg rolls) from also makes Butterfinger wontons that are SO good. But probably not as healthy as these. πŸ˜‰

  • Christie {Honoring Health} April 25, 2010, 7:24 pm

    Very creative cookies!!

  • Amber K @ sparkpeople April 25, 2010, 7:24 pm

    They sound great, but wait how long do you cook them for?

  • Jessica @ How Sweet It Is April 25, 2010, 7:29 pm

    Those cookies are genius!

  • Therese April 25, 2010, 7:31 pm

    Ooohhh! Those look GREAT and so simple! Thanks so much! The Boy and I planned to have a day similar to yours but somehow ended up voluntarily working on the house for 4.5hrs!!! We’re pooped and I’ve compiled some sort of casserole that I’m hoping will turn out! Eek!

  • Matt April 25, 2010, 7:31 pm

    Mmm roasted vegetables… Total comfort food πŸ™‚

  • Lindsay @ The Ketchup Diaries April 25, 2010, 7:33 pm

    Girl, you are KILLING me with these stuffed banana recipes!

  • Kait April 25, 2010, 7:37 pm

    Mmm those cookies look delicious and so easy to make!

  • Valerie April 25, 2010, 7:38 pm

    omgosh…I cannot wait to try out the won ton recipe. I’m soooo happy it’s a single serving! I always get frustrated when they only come in large servings. Thank u so much πŸ™‚

  • Marisa (Loser for Life) April 25, 2010, 7:42 pm

    Those are a great idea! I love wonton wrappers; they are so versatile!

  • Tonyne @ The Unlikely Success Story April 25, 2010, 7:48 pm

    I love a giant plate of roasted veg for dinner. I crave that sometimes. Those baked wonton yum-yums look epic. Just sayin’.

  • Becky April 25, 2010, 7:56 pm

    That may be the most perfect little dessert recipe! Anything that can be made in a single serving is perfect for this cookie monstah!

  • Melissa S. April 25, 2010, 7:56 pm

    i totally want to make those wontons but with apples! bananas get too mushy when baked!

  • Joseph April 25, 2010, 7:59 pm

    Those cookies are genius!

  • Run Sarah April 25, 2010, 8:04 pm

    The won ton cookies look like a fun dessert, great idea! I love roasted veg too – will be making them for dinner tonight!

  • Wei-Wei April 25, 2010, 8:07 pm

    OMG so creative! I MUST try this sometime! It’s great for portion control too, haha, since you can make as many or as little as you want!

    I love roasted veggies, but I don’t make them very often. Once I tried to bake broccoli by myself but I burned them a little and they dried out πŸ™ Tasted fine when dipped in balsamic though! πŸ˜€

    Cheers to a great week ahead!

  • Lisa April 25, 2010, 8:10 pm

    I had fried wontons with vanilla ice cream at Tao in Vegas. Delish!!

  • Katherine April 25, 2010, 8:11 pm

    we do a ghetto over-the-fire version at my summer camp- Pillsbury crescents in cinnamon sugar. not as classy as yours…

  • Camille April 25, 2010, 8:19 pm

    The wontons look incredible!

    Also, there is a huge billboard about a black away from my house that had that quote on it and an old man going down a slide. It makes me smile every time I see it πŸ™‚

  • Shannon, Tropical Eats April 25, 2010, 8:23 pm

    mmmmmmm. that is all πŸ™‚

  • caronae April 25, 2010, 8:29 pm

    Those are the cutest desserts I’ve seen in forever! Yum yum yum! I feel like you are so creative with wonton wrappers; I might get some now!

  • meg c. April 25, 2010, 8:41 pm

    wow that’s so creative! love those desserts. they look like they could be in a magazine (they probably could for real)

  • Lisa C. April 25, 2010, 8:45 pm

    These are amazing! I just made them (posted them on the blog of course) and they came out great!!

  • Evan Thomas April 25, 2010, 9:09 pm

    That quote made my day.
    And I am SO with you on the veggies. I also think nothing makes a meal feel more special like a whole baked sweet potato, even if it doesn’t fill me up in the least. It’s good to have that special dinner feeling

  • kate April 25, 2010, 9:18 pm

    Yum I love roasted VEG. Congrats on completing your 26-26-26 challenge!

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing April 25, 2010, 9:50 pm

    Oh I looooove roasted veggies! I can eat my weight in them!

    The wonton cookies sound absolutely amazing..

  • emily April 25, 2010, 10:03 pm

    You have been out of control creative with the recipe ideas lately!

  • *Andrea* April 25, 2010, 10:05 pm

    I love the quote. I don’t plan on growing up – ever! Just call me Peter.

  • Claire April 25, 2010, 11:05 pm

    I am also really comforted by a nice meal of roasted veg. My dad eats them most day of the week…yay for english men!

    those wonton banana treats look and sound so tasty!

  • Erin (Travel, Eat, Repeat) April 25, 2010, 11:05 pm

    Great quote–stay young (at heart) forever. :mrgreen: Love a big plate of veggies now and then. Feels good for the soul.

  • Emily Eats and Exercises April 25, 2010, 11:51 pm

    I have wonton wrappers that I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with… I think I’ll try changing up your ravioli to try to de-soggify them and then clearly this is dessert!

  • Dominique April 26, 2010, 12:16 am

    My dad used to make these for use every once in a while, when we had some bananas and leftover wonton wrappers to use up.

    I’ll be making some feta and prosciutto ravioli tomorrow so I think I’ll be saving some wrappers for naner wontons too! Awesome idea to bake them too as my dad always fried them.

  • Sarah April 26, 2010, 12:21 am

    Hi Caitlin! What do you put on your roasted vegetables and what is your roasting method? Your veggies always look so yummy! Thank You!

  • Ashley April 26, 2010, 1:23 am

    LOVing your kitchen creativity lately!! YUMMMMM

  • Freya @ Brit Chick Runs April 26, 2010, 2:29 am

    Wow those wontons look good!! You’re on a bit of a recipe kick at the moment!? Love it! And I totally agree – very few meals beat lots of lovely roast veggies…it’s the best πŸ˜€

  • Courtney (Pancakes & Postcards) April 26, 2010, 2:31 am

    Dude, I am dying to make these wantons and your pancake truffles!!! The only thing holding me back is that I know to make it “worth it” I would end up making three or four servings of each and promptly eating every. single. one. Which doesnΒ΄t really sound that bad come to think of it…

  • Larry April 26, 2010, 2:40 am

  • Amanda (Amanda "runs") April 26, 2010, 5:03 pm

    yummy wonton cookies! It rained here again. My shoulder hurts and I think that elipticals are mean but so much fun! πŸ™‚ Maybe after the OB book releases and you rake in the $$$ you can make a cookbook!
