Additional Spices: This recipes is also great with 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp cloves, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp fresh basil, 1/2 tsp fresh mint, 1/4 freshly grated ginger or for a fun twist 1/2 tsp mild curry. 
Note on Bananas: while any ripeness of bananas will work, I have found that the bananas that are ripe to very-ripe tend to work best in this recipe.
