Banana fritters/pancakes

Chop them up and freeze them. They make an excellent base for smoothies.

Cut up some dark chocolate into small pieces. Stuff the bananas with the chocolate. Bake in the oven for ten minutes wrapped in foil. Serve with cream or vanilla ice cream. I've had this twice this week grin

Banana pancakes are amazing.

Chop and freeze, then blend with whole milk for breakfast smoothies for the kids.

Chop them, freeze them, blitz them. Instant healthy ice cream. Tastes great with Nutella or peanut butter.

You can freeze them whole if you bake with them later.
Banana muffins, banana pancakes (basically banana, egg, small amount of flour, small amount of raising agent).

Peel and slice, then freeze them (if you can be bothered, freeze on a baking tray first, then tip into a bag to make them free flow). You can then use in smoothies, banana bread, blender muffins or whatever at your leisure

Inspired by the bodyshop thread - mush them and put them on shampooed hair ideally as a smoothy with some honey and coconut milk - leave for 15 minutes and rinse.

recipe just to show I'm not completely insain

Make banana ice cream - it's ridiculously easy. 1 ingredient and hardly any effort

SpongebobRoundPants Sat 11-Feb-17 18:06:52

Sounds weird but fry them and eat them on toast with honey or Nutella. It's amazing grin and very unhealthy

banana pancakes here as well.
they freeze well, great quick lazy breakfast item or for the lunchbox.

Peel and slice in half (if they're quite big ones) shove a lolly stick up the flat end, dip them in melted chocolate. Dark is the best in my humble opinion. Then freeze them.

If you've thought ahead, soak some raisins in rum (or lemon/orange juice). Ding the peeled bananas in the microwave with rum and/or orange/lemon juice (and raisins) with sprinkle of brown sugar. Eat with ice cream.
