Cream Cheese Banana Bread Recipe, Recipes, Bananas

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.

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

 

img_0442You can make muffins or bread, I always make 12 muffins and 1 loaf of bread.  Bake the muffins at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.  Cook the bread for 1 hour on 350 degrees.  Make sure the middle is done before you take it out of the oven.  Test it with a toothpick if it pulls out clean it should be done.

When my bananas get like that I freeze them whole in the skins. Then when I want to make banana bread I defrost them in a bowl and after about 30 minutes I cut the bottom off squish the banana goo into the mix. When you do that it comes out like a thick goop and you don’t have to mash it up.
