Recipe by Julie

I like this recipe because, well, it's quick, easy, healthy, and, most of all, yummy. No special ingredients needed...just baking staples and a couple of ripe bananas. This recipe comes from "the best of Cooking Light" cookbook.

Very good and excellent use of on-hand ingredients! I added 1/2 t. of vanilla extract and sprinkled pecans on the top before baking. Turned out great and no butter!
