Recipe by Martina
If you like bananas, coconut, and rum, then this is a dessert for you. A good way to use up ripe bananas. Instead of the sauce, serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Very Good! I love the combination of coconut and banna. Don't care for boozey flavored food so skipped the rum flavor and used vanilla extract instead. Also just drizzling chocolate syrup over top is very good too. Thanks for sharing!
