Encouraging Hearts and Home: Bunch of Bananas

While I personally do not like bananas we almost always have a few bunches on our counter. Rarely do we have any that go bad but when we do my husband and older son beg me to bake with them.  Typically I make our favorite banana bread but a few new recipes caught my eye at last week's party!  What do you like to do with over ripe bananas?

    1. I seem to be able to taste the smallest bit of banana in anything so I tend to avoid all things banana.

  3. I am not a fan of eating plain bananas either but we always have bunches of bananas lying around, too! When they get too ripe, I peel them and freeze them to use in shakes and smoothies or for baking. In fact, I just froze a whole bunch yesterday and might bake banana nut muffins this weekend.

    1. My oldest thought he was saving old bananas for me-- but forgot to put them in the freezer and they just molded and sort of melted to the counter! LOL.

  4. I like to make banana bread or banana muffins (same recipe) with old bananas but sadly sometimes I wait too long and they are too old then!! I also like to cut them into cooked oatmeal or add to plain Greek yogurt. I'd love to try banana pancakes. Sounds delicious!

  6. Bananas are one thing I had to say good-bye to after "going keto" - and one of the (few) things that I actually miss. And so many good banana recipes today!! Sigh.

    1. Aw, I couldn't imaging giving up some of my favorite fruits. I did go years without eating them because of the natural sugars but I am so glad I found an eating plan that works and allows me to enjoy them again.

  8. I always save over ripe bananas in my freezer. They can go right into the batter while cold. My granddaughters like banana bread with chocolate chips added, while we like it with nuts, so I always make two loaves at a time.

    1. Yep, I like to do that too and I also tend to make two loaves (we usually freeze one of those too!)

  9. Guess I need to hide some bananas! 😁

    1. That's usually the only way we have "leftovers" to bake with either.

  10. I am with you...I don't like bananas at all...not even in bread! So, I don't buy them! Thanks for the link party! Come visit tomorrow!

    1. I keep thinking I will like banana bread but then I take a taste... and nope! We do buy 2 or sometimes even 3 bunches a week though as my two banana eaters tend to eat 2 a day! I don't know how they can stand to do that...

  11. I make banana bread too. Banana muffin sounds really good.

    1. I never think of making muffins.. and yet they would be so much easier for a carry out breakfast for my working guys.

  12. Ohh! What great recipes. I love the sound of the Pumpkin Banana muffins.

    1. I thought that sounded like a good combination too; maybe the pumpkin would overpower the banana too...

      Delete
  13. Wow, banana pineapple...now that's an amazing combination that I don't think about regularly.

  17. We love bananas around here, but my husband loves them the most when they're going bad!

    1. No one in my house will eat them when they have more than a few brown spots on them.
