8 things to bake that aren’t banana bread
With lockdown 3.0 in full swing, you may or may not find yourself turning back to your old friend from last spring, the banana bread. However, if your trusty banana bread recipe is no longer hitting that same lock down boredom/comfort/snacking sweet spot, here are a few alternative ideas for using over-ripe bananas.

Make vegan banana pancakes

They’re a little more complicated than the box-batter pancakes, but the flavour payoff will make them your new go-to brunch heroes. Click through for the recipe.

Make chocolate and banana french toast

We’re still in weekend brunch mode here, but let’s be honest, time has lost all meaning so there’s no reason you can make this for dinner on a Wednesday. Or whatever day it is.  Click through for the recipe.

Make quick banana ice cream

I hope you’ve eaten all your frozen pizza already, because you’ll need freezer space for this next-level easy ice cream starring – you guessed it – bananas. Click through for the recipe.

Make microwave banana pudding

This one is so easy a child could make it. Actually, that’s a good idea. If you have a child lying around AND some bananas that need to be used, have the child make you this pudding. Click through for the recipe.

Make a banana, peanut butter and choc chip milkshake

Honestly not sure why you’re still reading past this name. Click through for the recipe and go get your milkshake on, we’ll wait.

Make baked bananas

These tinfoil-wrapped treats will take your right back to your childhood. Do them as the recipe instructs, or take the opportunity to use that fire pit you panic brought for outside family get togethers when that was a thing. It’s good stuff, this. Click through for the recipe.

Make choc chip banana bars

These look so delicious you might even sacrifice some perfectly ripe eating-bananas for this one. There are also some nice ingredient-swap suggestions in case you don’t have all the ingredients at hand. Click through for the recipe.

Make banana nilla cookies

Look, I don’t know what a “nilla” is and this recipe looks very complicated. But hey, what else have I got going on? Might as well have a Martha Stewart moment and give this recipe a try.
