So, I have a rather aged banana, and I was wondering what to do with it? (Pre-SBD I would make some banana bread / Muffins).
So I was wondering if there was some beany bread/ muffin concoction out there that anyone could point me in the direction of (I know I could make them with ww flour, but that doesn't really seem like a wise idea for me... being a banana bread hound)

Please send any suggestions my way (no matter how random)


***Also, sorry to anyone who clicked on this msg thinking I would be an exciting new recipe:o***

I have used banana in the mock snack cake (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/desserts-phase-2/196447-mock-snack-cake.html) recipe. I think I topped it with blueberries too (we had them to use :) ). This is a great recipe if you are comfortable playing with it.

Another way to use that banana would be in Nessa's Oatmeal Bars. Here is the link to that recipe -

You can find lots of other yummy recipes for banana bread and more in the recipes section of our forum.

Yum, thanks for the reminder Cottage - I haven't made Nessa Bars in a really long time. It's supposed to cool down the end of the week so I'm looking forward to a little baking.

I freeze them and then use them in smoothies or sorbets.

i've been playing around with the mock snack cake recently trying to make a banana bread. My family goes crazy for banana bread and it is unfortunately one of those things that I just can't have in the house. I'll post when I come up with something that resembles my old favorite BB.

Zeff, et al...

Have you tried this recipe??? (http://lowcarbdiets.about.com/od/breads/r/flaxbasicfoc.htm)
Banana would work great in it.
I used olive oil in it and no olive oil taste when done

You know, honestly, I still just made banana bread. I used whole wheat flour instead of regular. Instead of the 1C of sugar, I used 3/4 cup of sugar and truvia. Instead of the stick of butter I used 3/4 cup smart balance. It still came out delicious. I have been using whole wheat flour to make it and sometimes I use real butter and every time I still lose. You just have to watch how much you eat of it. It's still delicious(well, I don't know the specifics of your recipe) and I don't know how welcome it is to say this here but, I think it's the whole wheat flour and if you eat this bread daily you will sure be regular!:o


I liked it so much with the WW flour that I think I made it about 4 times in two weeks. And I still lost weight.

I just made applesauce (no sugar, just cooked apples from our trees) to make this banana bread (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/miscellaneous-phase-2/144492-banana-wheat-bread.html). It sounds good!

Resty, I've made banana bread that is OP before, but it is one of those trigger foods for me and it's just easier to not have it in the house. I don't know what it is about it.

Cat, that looks great!

Yeah. I'm sure I shouldn't have either because once I made it(it was the first time making it while I was on the SB diet but I didn't want the bananas to go to waste), I just wanted more and more. I did limit how much I ate but, yeah, I wound up making it many more times in a very little time period. I actually got sick of it but, after this thread...well...I may be making it again soon!

Here's one I posted a long time ago here. I haven't made it in a long time, but it was very good.
