Raise your hand if you had over-ripe bananas hanging out on your kitchen counter at least once. Yeah, me too. Many times, actually.
So today's post is like coming to the rescue with over 50 recipes that use over-ripe bananas. There are muffins, breads, smoothies, ice cream, blondies and brownies, cakes and cupcakes, waffles, pancakes and toasts. So many to choose from, your head will spin!
I suggest you save this post (bookmark, pin it) so you always have it on hand when the spotty friends find their way onto your counter. 🙂
recipes from food blogs around the web:
Whole Wheat Yogurt Banana Bread from Crunchy Creamy Sweet (2 bananas)
Banana Bundt Cake with Chocolate Glaze from Crunchy Creamy Sweet (2 bananas)
Fluffy Milk Chocolate Banana Muffins (skinny style) from Crunchy Creamy Sweet (2 bananas)
The Best Banana Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting and chopped Whoppers from Crunchy Creamy Sweet (2 bananas)
Best list I have every seen for bananas! I can not decide which one to try first!!!
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! 🙂
Totally love this roundup! Defo trying fried honey bananas later! Thanx xx
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.
That's fantastic! I thought we all need a list like this. 🙂 So glad it's helpful! Thanks, Katelyn!
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! 🙂
Great post! My favorite way to use them up is in muffins, yum! I also love freezing them for future recipes.
Great round up!! Thanks so much for including me! =)

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