  1. Preheat the broiler.
  2. Mix the bananas, sugar, and lemon juice together in a shallow baking pan or pie plate.
  3. Place under the broiler for a few minutes until the sugar melts and the bananas start to brown.
  • You can use rum in place of the lemon juice for a more sophisticated taste. I usually just use lemon juice. The warm bananas are also good topped with a scoop of fat-free vanilla frozen yogurt. This is an easy last minute dessert.
