Recipe by PaulaG

This is a rich ending to a perfect meal. If you want a non-alcoholic version, use apple juice for the dark rum.

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.
