Double Chocolate Banana Bread

Share

I always have a couple of overripe bananas in my freezer. I keep them for times when I want to make a banana bread or a smoothie. It’s tough to buy a banana that’s perfect for cooking. I find it takes a couple of days of sitting on a kitchen counter to get to the […]

It was a rainy day today and one of my sons is sick so I was stuck in the house with him and three overripe bananas.   I’m always on the lookout for new banana recipes and I found this one on a blog called Technicolor Kitchen.    It is really good.   The caramel on top is […]

Frozen Chocolate Covered Bananas

These are incredibly easy to make and SO delicious, especially if you make them with a good bar of chocolate.   I like milk chocolate, but these would also be great with semi-sweet chocolate as well.   If you’re not a big fan of sprinkles, try rolling the bananas in nuts.  Yum!  They’re a great, fun warm-weather […]

I was looking for a new cookie recipe to try and I noticed that I had a couple of overripe bananas on my kitchen counter just begging to be used.   I thought about making my favorite banana bread which I make all the time, but I wanted to try something different so I ended up […]
