“I used to throw the bananas away when they got too ripe for me, but lately I've started making banana nut bread instead. I've tried several recipes and this one's the best!”

“Thought that this needed a few extras while making. I added 1/2 tsp salt, and 1 tsp vanilla extract. The bread stayed very moist for days.”

“Freeze banana's for baking, the skins will turn black and they will be very easy to mash once thawed. ”
