Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons butter, cubed

  • 1-1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas
  • 3 tablespoons dark rum
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed

Directions

  • 1. In a small saucepan, melt butter. Stir in 1/2 cup brown sugar and bananas. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 3-4 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove from the heat. Stir in rum; set aside to cool.
