    • CrunchyCreamySw

      Thank you, Kelly!

  • Kathy Geryol

    I smash each one into a ziplock sandwich baggie, get all the air out and freeze them. When I want to bake with them, they are perfect to use even if they are a bit brown. They are great for banana bread and last in the freezer for a long time.

    • CrunchyCreamySw

      I love this idea, Kathy! Thank you for sharing it!

  • Kate

    Great round up!! Thanks so much for including me! =)

  • http://www.brooklynfarmgirl.com/ Pamela @ Brooklyn Farm Girl

    Great post! My favorite way to use them up is in muffins, yum! I also love freezing them for future recipes.

  • Lavinia

    I love that you mentioned how many bananas are used in each recipe; this was my starting point, I had too many over ripe bananas and needed a recipe which uses most! :)

  • Katelyn

    Wow this compilation of recipes was a life saver for all those countless frozen bananas in my freezer- I was on the brink of tossing them all out to make room but, compelled by my guilt of wasting food, I looked for exactly what this page has: so many tasty sounding recipes! I think the bananas will be eaten one way or another after all.

    • CrunchyCreamySw

      That’s fantastic! I thought we all need a list like this. :) So glad it’s helpful! Thanks, Katelyn!

  • Faerie

    Totally love this roundup! Defo trying fried honey bananas later! Thanx xx

  • http://www.texanerin.com/ Erin @ Texanerin Baking

    I don’t know if I ever said thank you for including a link of mine. :( What bad manners.

    So thank you! I love how you listed them by number of bananas used. Very helpful! :)

  • Marla

    Best list I have every seen for bananas! I can not decide which one to try first!!!
