Chocolate Banana Empanadas
1 package crescent rolls
2 bananas cut into thin slices
1 tablespoon sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Carefully open crescent rolls onto a lightly floured surface. Using a rolling pin eliminate any creases. Using a round cookie cutter or wide mouthed glass, cut circles in the dough. In the center of each circle place 1 teaspoon Nutella and several slices of banana. Fold edges of dough circles over and pinch to seal. Using a fork, prick the tops of each empanada. Sprinkle the tops with sugar and bake on a greased pan for 8-12 minutes until golden brown.

About Lorie Fangio

I am a lifestyle advisor with a passion for connecting families Around the Table for mealtime. We are becoming a society that doesn’t even speak to each other, texting and internet relationships are the norm and it is impacting our culture. I believe the human connection as we know it, is in danger. Finding time to spend together as a family unit can be difficult especially with dual family careers and children that are often hyper scheduled. My mission is to inspire families, with a no nonsense approach to real food. Gathering Around the Table is key to the foundation of familial relationships. Sitting down to a meal is much more than breaking bread, it is a bonding ritual for families that actually protects our kids from all the dangerous stuff in the world. With tips and techniques we can all get our families Around the Table!
