ISO - Banana Recipes

I have a whole bunch of bananas to use and I can only make so many loaves of banana bread. I love banana bread but I am looking for new ways to use this delicious friut.


Yes I am trying to eat healthy, no I am not on a diet.

It wouldn't use up that many of them, but here is a really simple semi-healthy treat I like to make at night.

Get a few graham crackers and break them into two squares. Put some mixed frozen berries in the microwave and break them down 'til their prime for spreading. Then you spread the berries on one square and add some slices of banana.

Place the second square on top and press it down a bit, sprinkle some cinnamon on top and stick it in oven for a nice little toast! It's simple, but very delicious.

Fruit salad. Bananas with: Oranges, peaches, kiwi, coconut, mango, pineapple, any fruit. Maybe some nuts or seeds. Honey, agave syrup, sugar, or whatever sweetener. Some cinnamon or nutmeg.

You can whip them all up with some milk or yogurt and freeze in icecube trays, then whirl in the blender for instant smoothies.

Banana Pudding

Layer with Vanilla wafers, vanilla custard, and bananas. Top with meringue, if desired. Let it set overnight. One of my favorite desserts.
A little bit Ginger. A little bit Mary Ann.

This is delicious and healthy:

Another delicious recipe:
Tike Treat (I use fresh orange juice)

Banana Cream Pie is yet another great option.

Yes, too many bananas, all ripe at the same time....a tricky prob too many of us often have..... and banana bread does get tiring, I agree.

I began to eat cereal (Cheerios my fav) with bananas for a light, evening snack.

I have added sliced bananas to my regular apple crisp recipe - delicious!

Chocolate pudding with bananas is good too, esp sprinkled with toasted coconut.
