Going Bananas

This Sparked Me!

When bananas are on sale or on the reduced produce shelf....I buy them! Peel them, cut them into smaller chunks and freeze....perfect for smoothies.

Use half of a mashed ripe banana to replace an egg in recipes like muffins...as long as you don't mind a little banana taste (use a little baking powder).

I have also used banana to replace oil in certain recipes...like you use applesauce. Go Bananas!!. emoticon

    I take a cake mix and add the mashed bananas to take up the oil and part of the water. My family really loves chocolate banana cake with fudge icing. emoticon
