Garnish them with fresh grated coconut & cardamom powder.
You can also add fresh nut powder. Filling & an apt breakfast substitute.

Notes from BitebyByte:
If you are ready for a cheat day, you may fork the bananas a little after steaming. Drizzle in warm ghee along with powdered sugar and cardamom powder. Let it rest for a couple of minutes for the bananas to absorb the flavours. Now you can go ahead and add the grated coconut and nut powder, and serve warm.
