  • Banana bread, banana muffins. You can freeze them for later baking.

  • When my bananas start to go brown and yucky, I pop em in the freezer. It's so easy to make things like banana bread when you have thawed bananas instead of fresher ones. I just made banana cake for my son's birthday party on the weekend - thanks to some thawed bananas.

  • Fold in the raisins and walnuts if desired. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
    Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool loaf in the pan for 10 minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.


    sorry they both got broken up, these boxes are not big enough to copy a whole recipe! but like i said, these are the 2 recipes i make and my kids devour them, i also share them and the people i have shared with love them!

  • I would peel them and freeze them and then when the weather gets hot use them to make smoothies! Frozen banana + OJ; frozen banana + apple juice; frozen banana + OJ + fresh summer strawberries; frozen banana + anything else you can think of! Blueberries, coconut milk, cinnamon, peanut butter, cocoa, yogurt... pick any combination that looks yummy to you! :o)

  • You can freeze bananas in the peel if you plan on cooking with them later (ie banana bread). My mom's been doing it for years and it doesn't affect the flavor.
