One question that I’ve seen come up at least three or four times in our Facebook group is the question of how to use up bananas so today I thought I’d share a few ideas!
Bananas are one of those things that I buy every single week when I do my food shopping. We all love them and as well as eating them just as they come, we also use them for everything from mashed on toast to sliced up on porridge.
The problem is when they go from lovely bright yellow to brown speckled because the kids have a thing about eating them when they start to go like this (as do I if I’m honest). Luckily this is the stage when they’re best for cooking so I’ve got a number of tricks up my sleeve to use them up.
How to use up bananas!
Mash a couple of bananas and add an egg and a bit of flour and make pancakes
Sliced bananas in milk
Make a banana split
Slice them up and use them to top your cereal or porridge for breakfast
Mash it up and eat on toast
Slice it up and pop it on a pizza – it goes great as a topping with chicken and sweetcorn
Blueberry and banana muffins
Slice and pop some chocolate buttons in and then wrap it in foil and pop on the barbecue
Make french toast and add some sliced bananas and syrup
Mash it on toast
