Bananas are excellent source of Vitamin B6, contain certain amounts of Vitamin C, manganese, potassium.A brown-spotted banana is a sign that the antioxidant levels have increased. The brown spots form when the chlorophyll in the fruit begins to break down and turn into antioxidants.

The recipe I tried out is from Marion's Kochbuch.
