After the enthusiastic reception of my “Caramelized Onion, Pear, and Pomegranate Bites” post, I decided to concoct a dessert version of that tasty dish. Who doesn’t love bananas foster, hmm? And, yes, pomegranate seeds made another much-appreciated appearance 🙂

Bananas Foster and Pomegranate Bites2


Bananas Foster and Pomegranate Bites

1-8 oz pkg Pillsbury Crescent Seamless Dough Sheet

1/4 cup butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

3 firm but ripe bananas, peeled and sliced into 1/2″ rounds

1/4 cup pecans

1 cup pomegranate seeds (optional, but oh-so-pretty and real tasty)

1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees; lightly oil a baking sheet (I used a rectangular pizza stone and dusted with cornmeal)

2) Unroll crescent sheet and place on baking sheet/pizza stone; set aside

3) In large skillet over medium heat, melt butter; stir in sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon; when mixture begins to bubble, stir in pecans and cook 1-2 minutes; remove from heat and stir in bananas

4) Spoon banana mixture over crescent sheet and bake in oven 10-12 minutes until crust puffs and turns lightly golden; remove from heat, sprinkle with pomegranate seeds, let sit 5 minutes; using a pizza cutter, cut into 6-8 squares and serve with or without vanilla ice cream

Servings: 6-8
