One of the best ways to be Thrifty is to reduce waste. I hate brown bananas, they make me gag, but they make wonderful banana bread, or pop them into the freezer and make a fruit smoothie with them.


Cream cheese banana bread

In a bowl mix,

  • 3/4 cups softened butter
  • 1 (8oz) cream cheese softened
  • 2 cups sugar

Mix till well blended then add

  • 2 large eggs


In another bowl mix dry ingredients

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Slowly add to wet ingredients,  Don’t over mix it…



Once you have dry ingredients mixed in, add

  • 1 and 1/2 cups mashed bananas ( about 4 bananas)
  • 1 cup pecans (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

I wish I wouldve had this recipe one hour ago. I am literally taking two loaves out of the oven in 5 minutes!


I just found these muffins on Pinterest and made them right away with the yucky bananas I have been avoiding all weekend.  They were SO good!  My four year old ate three muffins and I had to stop him from having another.  This is my new go-to banana bread recipe!  Thanks so much for sharing.

If you can't get to that banana bread TODAY pop the bananas in the freezer and bake another day. They don't take long to thaw out, so you can peel and mash them. I've had to do this many times, before heading out of town or just because i don't have enough bananas for bread.


I am sad I missed his version too! Don't ever be sorry about something like that ~ as your title implies "A Thrifty MOM" MOM being what comes first ;)

I'm kind of sad I missed your son's version. Though I know that's not very funny from your point of view, I think it would have put a smile on my face. :)
