A delicious and elegant use for ripe bananas. Especially good for dessert if you make them as waffles! Just warm a little raspberry preserves to pour over, and top with whipped cream. Note: Do not use Greek yogurt for this recipe, as it is too thick. Plain regular yogurt or cultured buttermilk work great.
