How-To
The special crunchy topping works best when the cereal is crushed and the banana chips are chopped to pieces about the same size. Pat the topping lightly onto the batter to assure it won't fall off after baking.
Health Twist
Bananas contain vitamin B6, also called pyridoxine. Vitamin B6 is important for digesting proteins, plus it helps keep hair and nerves healthy.
