    Delicious! Even my friends and family who said they're not banana dessert fans loved it.
    I only got two slices for myself because everyone loved it so much! Will definitely make it again.

    Great! I used whipped cream cheese instead and decorated with chocolate chips! It tasted awesome
    I got rave reviews I used Lorna Doone shortbread cookies for the crust instead of vanilla wafers or graham crackers. I felt they were better for a cheesecake based on a pie with a shortbread crust.

    This filling turned out really well! I decided to try using pretzels for the crust though, and they ended up getting chewy. Not sure if it was doomed from the beginning, or if I didn’t crush them finely enough....but I just had them in hand and wanted to try it. Next time will use Nilla wafers or grahams. I made a strawberry topping to go with this bc strawberry and banana is a favorite combo. So good.

    Great recipe. I increased the bananas to 5 and the crushed vanilla wafers to 2 cups. Also, I forgot to add the vanilla. everyone loved it.

    i so wanted to love this recipe. i love bananas and love cheese cake. while it turned out nicely, i thought it lacked banana flavor.

    Was awesome. Used the vanilla wafers as mentioned in the original post, advise to use a bit less butter in the crust... also topped with a peanut butter drizzle.... omg it was so good. Next time Im going to add a bit of pineapple to cake mix and top with coconut...

    This was my first time making a cheesecake, none the less a banana what a delicious treat. I made it in a pie pan and it still turned out superb. Thanks for sharing this recipe with the Yummly community!

    Absolutely delicious! I opted for graham cracker crust as I had them on hand. This recipe was easy and top-notch in flavor. I was concerned as my bananas were not very ripe, but it worked out perfectly. Definitely a keeper!

    This was simply fantastic. Just amazingly delicious in every way. I did the vanilla wafer crush and it was delicious I would suggest using more wafers as the crust turned out thin

    Such a good cheesecake ended up perfectly! I put a half teaspoon of vanilla extract and a half teaspoon of banana extract turned out great! I finished it off with granulated sugar and made a brûlée on the top! Would highly recommend
