I know, it’s quite typical, but my most favourite way to use overripe bananas is to make banana bread.
This recipe below is my all-time favourite. I’ve been using it for more than 4 years already, and I don’t want to change a thing in it. Perhaps, just add a handful of chocolate chips from time to time. 🙂
