1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons reduced-calorie margarine, melted
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 large firm ripe bananas (about 1 1/2 pounds)
Cooking spray
1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
1 1/2 cups vanilla low-fat frozen yogurt


Preheat oven to 450°.

Combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl, and set aside.

Cut bananas in half lengthwise. Place banana halves, cut sides up, on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 450° for 4 minutes. Drizzle sugar mixture evenly over banana halves, and sprinkle with toasted walnuts. Bake an additional 3 minutes. Cut each banana piece into thirds crosswise. Serve bananas with frozen yogurt; drizzle with any remaining sugar mixture.
