I have to eat mine on the green side as well. Can't stand mushy overripe ones and just cannot eat banana bread either (though my son loved it and I made it often).
If they start to get too ripe for my taste, I peel them and pop them into a freezer bag. From there they are ready for the healthiest smoothies ever! Add some other fruit (frozen berries are my favorite), a scoop of protein powder, a splash of soy milk or juice and a dab of honey. mmmmm Breakfast lunch or snack in about two minutes.
