Ripe banana recipes

I have 4 bananas that are on their way out and I wanted to make something quick and easy with them.

Any ideas besides banana bread?

Re: Ripe banana recipes

I like to freeze them (freeze peeled, in chunks, on a baking sheet, then put in a freezer bag) and make smoothies. Other options we love are banana cookies with browned butter icing and banana muffins.

Re: Ripe banana recipes

Smoothies The only way I knew how to use ripe bananas was banana bread but I grew tired of it

Muffins are a good alternative I think.

We already have a smoothie banana stash in the freezer from the last round of ripe bananas and before that I made banana bread muffins.

Maybe I'll try cookies.

Re: Ripe banana recipes

I made "banana bread" granola bars a couple weeks ago with my overripe bananas. I think I found the recipe on Pinterest?

Besides what's already mentioned you could do pancakes.

Oh my DS2 would love that. Would they freeze well? What do you mix the mashed banana with?

Off to Pinterest I go!

I just add it to the pancake batter the same way I would berries or something, and adjust the consistency a smidge if need be.

I don't really know how they freeze because they are usually all gone! I would think they would freeze pretty well though.

Re: Ripe banana recipes

I've frozen waffles, so I'd assume pancakes would be ok too
