Slow Cooker Chunky Monkey Lava Cake

Sometimes inspiration for my slow cooker recipes come in the form of  very brown, unattractive things.

I’m talk in’ about bananas.

Very ripe and more than a few days past their prime, might I add.

I had a bunch sitting on the counter a little too long.

So I decided to re purpose those nanners into a lovely heavenly dessert.

I started out by referring to my popular recipe for Slow Cooker Chocolate Lava Cake , replaced the oil from the original recipe with the ripe bananas and increased the cooking time.  The results were quite tasty, especially if you are banana lover or even a banana “liker” like me.
