How to Make BANANA CRISP
- Peel and slice the bananas. Divide the slices evenly among 4 ungreased 6-ounce ramekins or souffle dishes.
- In a small bowl, combine 2 Tbsp. melted butter and the lemon juice. Mix well. Drizzle the butter mixture over the bananas in each ramekin.
- In a small bowl, combine the oats, walnuts, brown sugar and the remaining melted butter. Mix well. Sprinkle the oat mixture evenly over the bananas.
- Bake in a preheated 375-degree oven until the bananas are hot and the topping is bubbly, about 10 to 12 minutes. Serve warm with the ice cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
- SOME VARIATIONS:
For a tropical taste, use lime juice instead of lemon juice and add 1 tsp. grated fresh ginger. Substitute unsweetened coconut for the walnuts.
Add 1/4 tsp. ground cloves to the butter and lemon juice mixture. The flavor of the spice is utterly delicious in this dessert!
