never get caught without a banana…

freeze those bananas!! i have always frozen my bananas, this was something that my mother always did!! and she made the best banana bread!! I will share her very simple recipe with you. but it’s all in the bananas. she was constantly throwing bananas if they were getting a little too ripe into the freezer, skin and all, just like that. and they turn black, they get incredibly sweet.

whenever i need a banana for a recipe or a smoothie, i either whip them out of the freezer and thaw them out on my counter for an hour or two, or pop them (still in their skins!) into the microwave on medium power for about 10 secconds or so until slightly soft. peel and add to your recipe.

here is my mom’s recipe:
Marie’s Banana Bread

3 large eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
3 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 medium bananas (previously frozen is great!!)
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup packed light brown sugar (could use 1/2 light and half dark)
1 cup sugar
1 cup walnuts

preheat oven to 350
mix everything together in a mixer. divide mixture in 2. spray 2 loaf pans with cooking spray. bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour. checking with toothpick for doneness.
