  1. Am I the only one who added chocolate? I used a 9 x 13 casserole dish, doubled the topping and added chopped baking squares of chocolate on top to melt through as it bakes. Fabulous!!!
  2. This is the perfect last minute recipe. It's good enough to serve to family and friends. We enjoyed this simple treat so much. It was wonderful hot and cold. I didn't get to add any ice cream to it, after I tasted it, it was so good, that I couldn't stop eating it and it was gone before I knew it. Next time I will add ice cream or whipped cream for a truly spectacular treat. I should add that I used very ripe bananas, they worked perfectly in this dish. Love this new way to use over ripe bananas. Thank you for sharing a recipe that we will enjoy often.
  3. So perfect! I made this as a yummy summer dessert and it was exactly that! I didn't have ramekins so I used an 8 x 8 corningware dish. For the granola- I used "Just Bunches" cereal. It's only the bunches from "Honey Bunches of Oats." Talk about delicious!!! I topped it with vanilla ice cream and it was great. Highly recommended!!
  4. I doubled the recipe, then put sliced bananas and a little bit of brown sugar on top, 15 - 18 minutes in the oven. It turned out FANTASTIC. First time making this!!
  5. This is the perfect recipe! I registered on just to thank you for this recipe, and to tell you that I love it! It's a great way to use overripe bananas and as others have said, it's something you can prepare very quickly after dinner without any planning.


  1. Two tweaks I have made: (i) instead of using ramekins, I put all the ingredients in a pie plate and I make four portions when I serve it. My kids need to know that they have exactly the same amount of bananas, oatmeal, etc. and I cannot guarantee that if I use ramekins (I also need to mention that I don't have ramekins!); (ii) I put some chocolate chips on top of the ingredients before I put it in the oven. It's completely fine without them but adding them is a bonus that everybody loves. One other thing: I like it best after 15 minutes in the oven. I find that 10-12 minutes is not quite enough.
