A truly fabulous recipe: loved the great blend of flavours and the fact that this recipe was relatively low in fat. We eat a lot of bananas and this is certainly a recipe which turns them into an exotic dish where one savours every spoonful. I particularly liked the inclusion of the walnuts. We enjoyed these yummy bananas with several generous dollops of creamy Greek yoghurt. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, Paula! :) Made for Ali Baba's Babes for ZWT 5.
Looks great and tastes as good as it looks! Would not have thought to raisins with bananas either - but then have not made these banana treats until this past week. Along with the lovely taste - it makes for an impressive looking desert - as one can see in the photos! Thank you Paula.
I made this for dessert; what a treat! We really enjoyed the combination.My husband loves raisins but would have never thought to add them with the bananas.I served them on ice cream. Thanks for posting Paula.
