    This recipe is awesome. I can't believe it doesn't have 5 stars...and I can't believe it has no added sugar. Though it makes up for it in calories and fat. Super easy recipe and great way to use overripe bananas. Yum!

    I made these and had a lot of complaints about the salty nuts. I think next time I will use unsalted... But it was a very good recipe despite that.
