Expert Tips

  • We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.
  • Bananas are at their sweetest when very ripe, flecked with brown and very soft. Extra unpeeled bananas can be bagged and frozen up to a month. Just thaw, cut off the end of the peel and squeeze the banana into your mixing bowl.
  • You can substitute about 1/2 cup dried currants or dried cranberries for the walnuts.
  • *To toast walnuts, heat oven to 350°F. Spread walnuts in shallow pan. Bake uncovered 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown.
