6 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
4 Tablespoons margarine or butter
½ cup raisins or other dried chopped fruit
⅓ cup chopped pecans

Directions

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.

Notes

  • Try adding ½ teaspoon (or more) cinnamon or a dash of cayenne to the other toppings.
  • When bananas are peeled or cut, the flesh starts to brown. Browned bananas might not look attractive but they are safe to eat. Reduce browning by peeling or cutting just before using.
