Recipes for old bananas?

Bananas. I used to like them overripe, but these days my bananas have to be yellow with few spots or I don’t enjoy them. That said, I have 3 overripe bananas and one in the freezer from last week. Apparently, I need to buy a few less at the store this week! So, I am debating between a few banana recipes. I used to make banana bread all the time but one day, Joe burst my baking bubble when he told me he doesn’t really like banana bread. The horror! So I began investigating other banana recipes. I tend to not like some baked goods with banana flavor (other than banana bread, of course) so I want something that won’t be overpowered by banana.

Here are the front-runners. I won’t have time to do the baking until later tonight, so it will give me some time to think it through!

Chocolate PB Brownies

Banana Nut Brownies

Vegan Chocolate Brownies

Dark Chocolate Banana Bread– made into muffins, perhaps?

Fudgy PB Banana Brownies

Clearly, banana brownies are the front runner. What ever shall I bake???

And the winner is… Dark Chocolate Banana Bread!

I ate two before taking the picture. Oops!

Turns out Joe does like banana bread. I made muffins and halved the recipe because I didn’t want 30 muffins. I added 1 TBSP cocoa powder and used chocolate chips and PB chips, because this is what I had. I also just used the egg white since I was halving the recipe and it is hard to half an egg without just separating it.  And I baked them about 20-22 minutes. Love them! Thanks to PB boy!
