"Un"-fried Bananas

These bananas melt in your mouth and taste so rich that it is hard to believe this is a healthy dessert. It also makes a great filling for the whole wheat crepes recipe have previously posted.


2 medium bananas, cut vertically into ½ inch thick slices
1 tablespoon brown sugar
10 -15 sprays ICB or 1 teaspoon light margarine or light whipped butter
2 tablespoons chopped nuts (optional for garnish)
1 tablespoon fat free caramel sauce (optional for garnish)
2 tablespoons fat free whipped topping or vanilla frozen yogurt (optional for garnish)


Spray a small pan with ICB or coat with 1 teaspoon light margarine or light whipped butter on medium heat. Add the banana slices and heat on one side for a 2-3 minutes. As they start to soften, flip them over and sprinkle with brown sugar and continue to heat for another 1-2 more minutes until evenly coated and the bananas are soft yet still holding their shape. Remove from heat, and top with chopped nuts, drizzle with caramel sauce and/or top with fat free whipped topping/vanilla frozen yogurt for a decadent but healthy treat!
