This is one of those "out-of-this-world" dishes. The combination of ingredients is so different! I also like the versatility -- we had it as a hot side dish with Banana Meatloaf, but I can easily see putting the prepared banana pieces in the freezer until serving time, then using the sauce as a dip. This is definitely worth a try!


I started out making it like the recipe calls for, but then I decided to do my own thing to it and put the 1/3 cup of peanut butter in with the sauce and just a splash of maple syrup... poured it over the bananas with peanut butter and it was pretty good. My daughter had two helpings of it... The peanut butter sauce was more like a peanut butter fudge...but not set up.


I haven't made this yet, but my grandmother used to make a Banana/Peanut salad. You might try mixing the Peanut Butter in the sauce, and then LAYER it along with chopped peanuts over sliced bananas.
