Bananas seem to turn brown a few hours after they are brought home, not giving you enough time to eat them. There is a recipe that you can make with overripe bananas with several variations that include peanut butter, fresh fruits and even vegetables. Banana bread is often made with walnuts, slices of bananas and a bit of cinnamon or honey. It has a sweet flavor and is delicious with a tall glass of milk or a hot cup of coffee.
One of the recipes features brown butter. It gives the bread a darker color. You can top the bread with brown sugar and cinnamon for more of a dessert bread instead of one that is enjoyed in the morning. Another delicious recipe is strawberry banana bread. You can use either fresh or frozen berries. If you use fresh berries, you don’t need to use as much milk in the batter as the berries have a high water content. Top with whipped cream and sliced almonds for a nice treat.
Another option is chocolate avocado bread. It is made with cocoa powder, which blends well with the bananas, as well as slices of avocados. You can also use slices of zucchini if you don’t like avocados. Children might enjoy peanut butter in a traditional banana bread batter along with a bit of jelly on the bread after it’s cut.
