Bananas Foster is one of my favorite desserts, and I was so impressed with my daughter, Leigh, told me she came up with a nonalcoholic version (perfect for kids). She used maple syrup instead of alcohol and created her own Nonalcoholic Bananas Foster which was fabulous! With only 7 ingredients and 15 minutes, you can make homemade kid-friendly Bananas Foster too! Thank you my precious and very creative daughter, Leigh!
Nonalcoholic Bananas Foster
4 tbsp. butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
2/3 cup maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 bananas, peeled and sliced lengthwise and crosswise
Chopped pecans (optional)
Vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt
1. In a large, deep skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in brown sugar, maple syrup and cinnamon. When mixture begins to bubble, place bananas and pecans, if desired in pan. Cook until bananas are hot, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve at once over vanilla ice cream or yogurt.

My father does Bananas Foster every year, though his has booze in it (even when we were a kid... Most of the alcohol burns off anyway). :-) Now you have me craving it!

Can't kids have traditional bananas foster too? The alcohol cooks out and it's fine.
