There are SO MANY more recipes for ripe bananas other than banana bread, which is probably the most common banana dessert out there.

You will also find some vegan, gluten free and healthy ripe banana recipes too. You can always make adjustments to suit your taste preference too.

I LOVE to use ripe bananas for baking because:

  • They add a lot of moisture to your cakes/cupcakes, cookies e.t.c.
  •  You can use mashed bananas to easily substitute some sugar and even a bit of butter/oil in your recipes. It’s a great way to make your favorite recipes lighter and healthier.

Are overripe bananas bad for you?

No, they are not bad for you. They are actually naturally sweeter than unripe bananas, which means you have to add less sugar in your recipes.
