I have made this today and was not quite sure what to expect but I did get a very nice result. I thought given the ingredients this might have been quite dry but the bananas do add moisture. I sprinkled it with cinnamon sugar to add a touch of sweetness and to pretty it up a little for the photo. I love the grainy texture but will add more almond essence next time as I love it. I will wait and see if it gets drier over the next couple of days but I can always heat it up a bit in microwave and serve with cream or yogurt to offset that if it occurs.
