“Got this recipe from a friend. It is a simple, easy and yummy recipe. It's not too sweet, well at least I don't like it too sweet (so if I were to use ripe bananas, I would decrease the amount of sugar to maybe a 3/4 cup), and the best part of it is that no margarine or butter is used in this yecipe. :)”
