  7. Set aside and allow to cool for about 10 minutes.
  8. Add chopped pecans to a medium nonstick skillet and toast over medium heat for approximately 5 minutes, stirring continuously.
  9. Remove from heat and place pecans in a small bowl.
  10. Place skillet back on stovetop, turn heat to low and add butter.
  11. Once butter begins to melt, stir in sliced bananas and cook over medium heat for 5-8 minutes, stirring often.
  12. Once bananas begin to appear brown and shiny, remove from heat and stir in ¼ teaspoon cinnamon.
  13. It's time to assemble! Place ½ cup pudding in the bottom of 4 small containers.
  14. Top each pudding cup with 3 tablespoons bananas and 1 tablespoon pecans. Enjoy!
