I made this years ago and got requested to make it again - it's a great dessert that's easy to make - I use walnuts instead of pecans and make it is a little deeper cookie sheet so it's easier to flip over onto another cookie sheet

This was a very quick dessert and great use of some slightly over-ripe bananas. The only downside was that it got a little soggy, but that didn't detract from it at all. I would absolutely make this again. It would be great with a little

Easy, fast, versatile, delicious! Great for breakfast with cup of coffee or serve with ice cream for a knock-their-socks- off dessert. Enjoy!
