Prepare grill for medium heat cooking.  Cut bananas in to two inch pieces and slice each on the bias leaving the peel intact.  Grill bananas for approximately 5 minutes on each side until peel turns dark brown and banana has softened.  Meanwhile heat a small saucepan on the grill.  Add walnuts and cook 3-5 minutes stirring periodically until lightly toasted.  Add butter and maple syrup and heat an additional 5 minutes.
