Here's a "bunch."

Got a glut of bananas

http://www.discusscooking.com/forums...s-35447-2.html

And...

Banana (strawberry) & Yogurt-Filled Crepes
Banana and Yogurt Crepes

Banana & Walnut Pancakes

Fruit Salad
Sliced bananas, strawberries, blueberries, mangos, papaya, pineapple & Macadamia nuts. Combine plain yogurt w some honey & lime juice & drizzle over salad. Lemon yogurt is another suggestion for a topper.

Banana s'mores - Graham crackers, slice of banana, square of chocolate & a marshmallow.

Thai Fried Bananas
Fried Banana

Slice a banana in half lengthwise - but not all the way thru - sprinkle w chocolate chips & nuts, wrap in foil & bake.

Thanks everyone! You have created a nice collection of everything to do with bananas. Buying on sale, mashing and freezing is something I would never have thought of!

I do appreciate it - with the blood pressure regime especially with the "water pill' (some of you know the drill I'm sure) I tend to let the potassium get low and that's not nice at all. Bad as a matter of fact. Now I have no excuse!

David, make sure they are pretty ripe before you mash them, for maximum flavor!

and btw, potatoes are even higher in potassium than bananas!

The best banana muffin recipe I tried used some sour cream, orange zest, mini chocolate chips, and of course, pureed banana. They were easily the best muffins I've had in my life.

1 c flour
3/4 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
5 T butter
1/2 c sour cream
1 banana
1 t orange zest
1/2 c sugar
1/2 t vanilla extract

Cream together banana and sour cream
Add softened butter and sugar, mix
Add zest and vanilla and egg
Mix dry ingredients, incorporate
Add chips to taste
Bake 350 till risen and golden

David, I meant to post this recipe for you. It not only tastes amazing, it's also healthy. No refined sugar, no white flour. I also use this recipe as the base for cheesecake!

BANANA BREAD

makes 2 8x4-inch, or 4 mini loaves

1/2 cup warmed clover honey
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 VERY ripe bananas, mashed
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 extra large eggs, well beaten
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup raw wheat germ
2 tablespoons Rumfords Baking Powder
1/2 tsp fine sea salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Cream honey and oil, and stir in bananas, vanilla and well beaten eggs.

In a separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients and nuts, and stir into the egg mixture only until just mixed.

Oil the loaf pans very well. Pour the batter into the prepared pans. Bake at 325 degrees F. The 8x4-inch loaves will require about 50 minutes, the mini loaves about 40 minutes.

Cool in pans for about 10 minutes, then remove and finish cooling on a cake rack. [If you want to give the mini loaves as gifts in their pans, just leave them in. If you've oiled the pans well enough, they'll come loose whenever.]
