I mash and freeze my brown bananas to make banana bread....although its sweet, its really not a dessert. You can toast it, put peanut butter on it for breakfast, .... if you use WW flour and watch the sugar and other ingredients it can be a healthy snack.
You can also mash and freeze them while they are yellow and eat as a healthy alternative to ice cream.....I know you said not dessert, but just saying you can keep them a good while in the freezer.
Have you tried adding to Carribean dinner recipes? I know they call for plantains, but a banana may work too......
Not much help, but I tried :)

I emoticon these--they're quick and easy, "whole" and have protein. You can make them with any nut butter.

Freeze for smoothies. Maybe make a coconut curry.

Once they start to turn brown, put them in freezer. I have done this and made banana bread at a later date ! All of my other recipes are for desserts, breads and muffins.


BANANA PANCAKES

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 medium ripe bananas, cut into 1/4-inch slices


Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl.

Combine the egg, milk, oil and vanilla in another bowl.

Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients. just until moistened.

Cook on a hot griddle and add 6 banana slices to each pancake before turning over.

Any non-dessert ideas? They are at optimal ripeness right now, all yellow and no brown... But they are gonna start going downhill fast I'm sure...
