Ingredients

banana(s)

2 large, sliced

canned pineapple packed in juice

2 oz, drained and chopped

unpacked brown sugar

1 Tbsp, packed

ground ginger

¼ tsp

chopped walnuts

½ oz

phyllo dough

8 sheet(s), at room temperature

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F; spray a nonstick baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. In a small bowl, mix the bananas, pineapple, brown sugar and ginger until the fruit is coated and syrupy. Stir in the walnuts.
  2. Place the phyllo on a work surface and cover with a damp towel. Stack 2 sheets and spray with butter-flavored nonstick cooking spray. Stack 2 more sheets directly on top. Cut the phyllo into two 12 x 8 1/2 inch rectangles. Repeat with remaining 4 sheets of phyllo. Place fruit in the center and twist, forming packets that look like drawstring pouches; place on the baking sheet and spray tops with butter-flavored spray. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.

Notes

With 1/2 cup of vanilla nonfat frozen yogurt, they're even more heavenly!
