I am frequently overly optimistic when I purchase Bananas. They look so golden & delicious. . .the kids love them. . . they are only $.44 a lb. . . we’ll go through a dozen in no time right?
Sometimes we do-I swear Princess would eat 3 a day if I would let her. My mom & mother-in-law, nurses both, do not recommend that for a daily intake unless you want to serve prune juice alongside!
But other times, many other times, we have bananas that start to go brown.
Banana bread is a classic-but sometimes you get tired of it and want something different. Need a new way to use up Bananas going brown? Try Banana Squares! These delicious treats are similar to a blonde banana brownie. Think of it as a cookie alternative.
