For someone who loves banana bread as much as I do, it’s hard to believe that I just made it for the first time on my own yesterday. I went with a standard recipe to use up my overripe bananas. The thing I like most about this delicious snack is the flexibility in the recipe. You can adapt it to fit dietary needs or to accommodate for missing items in the recipe. Consider subbing eggs for applesauce, choose butter, oil or margarine, or use any flour on hand. You can even add nuts, raisins, cinnamon and vanilla into the mix. After a few days, toast the bread and add butter to “wake” it back up. If you don’t have time to make the bread, but don’t want your bananas to go to waste, peel and mash them up before freezing. You can store them for up to a month this way.
Since Baby Eco loves bananas, too, it will be tough to decide which way to use the ripe ones!
