Favourite Recipe: Ban-ann-na-nana!

I love bananas. They are a quick & easy snack on the go, throw one in your bag and you’re set for later.

I put them in my cereal:

At work I freeze a bunch up in small baggies– to be added to a protein shake as my “2nd” breakfast or lunch. Yum Yum! It’s like having a milkshake!

But when the time comes and they are past the “point of no return” (this happens quickly)………which for me is as soon as I see brown spots happening. My gag reflex starts and I can’t eat them once that happens (I know, I know….more flavour blah blah blah….but for me-YUCK!).

This is what I do with the bananas that we weren’t quick enough to eat (even for the brown spotted eaters in the family). I make banana bread or muffins. No one ever complains about that! 🙂

Yup.  These bananas are only good for.....Banana Bread!
