There are bananas in our house all the time. Toward the end of summer, it seems the prices really drop, so I will buy several bunches to use in different ways and recipes. We all know its one of the easiest snacks around and kids love them.

I’m constantly online looking for new recipes and uses for bananas. I thought it would be fun to find several recipes and ideas to use up bananas and have them in one post to refer back to easily.

Bananas are rich in fiber, antioxidants, and several nutrients. A medium-sized banana contains about 105 calories. They also contain nutrients that can help moderate blood sugar levels after meals. They may also reduce appetite by slowing stomach emptying and help relieve muscle cramps caused by exercise. And the main reason why I eat bananas is they may feed the friendly gut bacteria and help protect against colon cancer.

So there is no reason not to have a banana in our diet daily.

TIP: Easy way to freeze bananas is to slice them on a cookie sheet, freeze, and then store in a freezer container. If I need a banana to bake with, I just let the amount I need to thaw in a bowl. I have frozen bananas in their skin to use in recipes that I will bake. Thaw and remove skins.

  1. We always have bananas in our home too! For now, I only tried making the simple banana muffin. I’m excited to try some of the choices above. Thanks for this awesome list.

  2. This is the BEST blog post for me! I always love buying bananas, but find that I don’t get through the whole bunch before they start to get mushy. I tend to either throw them out (and I hate that!) or bake banana bread, but that gets old. I’m so excited to have these ideas! Pinning this! 🙂

  3. Love your tip on how to prep & freeze bananas as we all have a few left over. I’ve been wanting to learn how to use them in smoothies but so far I haven’t done it …

  4. These are fantastic ideas! I always just eat them or bake banana bread, LOL! Sometimes, we put them in oatmeal!

  5. My family loves bananas – I try – I like the flavor in muffins and shakes as long as its not too strong. This is a great list of ways to use bananas – I will be trying a lot of these.
