1/3 cup finely chopped pecans

Cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat until coconut is golden brown, about 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine the bananas, lemon juice, and vanilla.


In a separate bowl beat the cream cheese and remaining stick of butter with an electric mixer on medium speed.


Add the sugar, then the banana mixture. Blend well.
