So tonight in my Nutrition class I found out that I'm clinically overweight and that my BMI is slightly over where it should be.
So in all of my "gonna begin making better food choices" HYPE, I came home and made dessert. What the hell... what does a registered dietician know about food anyway?
2 bananas, large sliced length-wise
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c dark liquor (I prefer brandy or grand marnier)
3 tbsp butter
coffee flavored ice cream
Heat butter in skillet, melt slightly (don't burn)- medium heat; add brown sugar and start to carmelize. Add alcohol and cook for less than 1 minute. Add bananas, reduce heat and cook 2 minutes on both sides. Spoon over ice cream, making sure to drizzle sauce over all over plate.
I bet if you add some kind of nut (walnuts, pecans) on top this would be even better! :)
