Recipe by The Guy

I have been ordering these Banana Lumpia at various Filipino restaurants for a few years now and have never tried to make my own. These are very easy to make and are a great snack or dessert.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 filipino lumpia skins
  • 8 baby bananas (or you could use regular Banana's cut in half)
  • sugar (can be replaced by Carmel or Chocolate)
  • vegetable oil (varies depending on size of pan)


  1. Fill frying pan with vegetable oil (about a quarter inch high or about half a banana high) and begin to heat on Medium heat.
  2. Separate 8 Filipino Lumpia Wrappers and set on wax paper.
  3. Put one baby banana (or half of a regular banana) on the corner of the Lumpia Wrapper. Begin to roll the wrapper around the banana, half way through folding the sides inches To keep the wrapper closed add a small amount of water with your finger to the end of the wrapper.
  4. When all the Lumpia are wrapped place in heated up oil and fry on each side until golden brown, approximately 2-4 minutes per side.
  5. Let oil drip off Lumpia when taken out of oil and place on plate with paper towel to soak up additional oil.
  6. While still hot, sprinkle sugar on the Lumpia (you can replace this with chocolate or carmel depending on your taste and availability).
  7. They are now ready to enjoy.
  8. Note: You can freeze any unwanted lumpia for later use.
