Cinnamon Spiced Bananas

Looking for a great and delicious way to make bananas? Give this recipe for cinnamon-spiced bananas a try. Even though I’m watching what I eat, I still get a craving for something ‘sweet.’ Cinnamon Spiced Bananas would no doubt be super fantastic spooned over a very large bowl of vanilla or cinnamon ice cream, but since I don’t want to totally ruin my diet, I decided to serve warm cinnamon-spiced bananas with plain Greek yogurt. I think I just found my new ‘sweet’ treat. It was super good!
