7 Bonkers Delicious Banana Recipes That Aren't Banana Bread
The Debrief: Got some mushy looking bananas but sick of banana bread? Here's a few cheap and easy things to make.
1. Pan Fried Cinnamon Bananas
Time: 10 mins
Barely a recipe because it's so stupidly easy. Just get yourself some bananas, some cinnamon, some nutmeg, oil and a pan and go wild. Full recipe here on Dizzy Busy & Hungry.
2. Fluffy Banana Pancakes
Time: 15 mins
My boyfriend makes these when I make enough of a fuss about it and holy moses, are they a treat. And I don't even like sweet things. They are easier to make with a blender but pancake nirvana can be achieved through the very scientific method of 'mushing up with a fork'. Get the full recipe from Kitchen Treaty here.
3. Peanut Butter Banana Bars
Time: 45 minutes
If you're clever, you know that adding peanut butter to stuff makes it like, 100% better than it already was. That's why these bars, although probably not the healthiest thing on the list, are almost certainly the best. Get the full recipe from Bake of Break here.
4. Banana Oat Energy Bites
Time: 10 mins prep, 2 hours cooling
These are like those Bounce balls that are like £3 and taste like sawdust but that you eat any way because you know they're meant to be good for you. Eat these for breakfast before you head out. Make them the night before because obvs. Full recipe from Tip Hero here.
5. Shake & Go Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats
Time: 5 minutes prep
For the busy gal who couldn't give a flying fuck about getting up early to make a healthy breakfast. Make these the night before and then eat them the next day on the train like an absolute champion. Full recipe from Two Green Peas here.
6. Banana Muffins
Time: (An oddly specific) 32 mins
Muffins are one thing I welcome from the States but the muffins they have in Starbucks are so not good for you it's not even funny. Make these banana muffs at home instead. Full recipe from Gal On A Mission here.
7. Banana Dolphin Cocktail Garnish
Time: 2 minutes
Just because these are cute. Stick them in all your drinks; cocktails, beer, wine, water, coffee... whatever. Find out how to make them on Lucky Peach.
