Take another look at the sentence:

Peeling the banana, Jackie's hunger was satisfied with this snack.

Peeling the banana, a participle phrase, comes right before hunger, an illogical target. Hunger doesn't have fingers to peel anything! [Jackie's, a possessive noun, functions as an adjective describing hunger.]
