Chances are you have overripe bananas on your counter. Look no further: here are 66 recipes for how to use them!

Over 66 ways to use overripe bananas. Cookies, bread, cakes, and so many more banana recipes!

Do you often find yourself with overripe bananas? I do, all the time. We eat so many bananas that I tend to buy huge amounts. And because you can’t buy perfect bananas (they’re usually too green), I have to let them sit and ripen. And then they’re all ripe at the same time and I need to eat 12 bananas or they go bad.

It’s a popular problem, I think.

I love putting bananas in baked goods. One, they’re great for breakfast. Two, they’re a great way to get rid of some of the fat. And three? They taste good! If you have some bananas on your counter that are just waiting to be used, check this list. I have over 66 recipes using overripe bananas…find something you love.

  1. As a girl with more than a few bananas that desperately need to be used up or frozen, this post makes me very happy.

  2. I love, love, love bananas.  I eat one every day.  Even so, by the time the week is up, several of them are overripe and I end up freezing them!  Consequently, I have way too many bananas in my freezer!  Your post is a great round-up of ideas for using my frozen bananas!  Thank you – I’m a happy girl!

  3. Love anything with bananas! Pinning this collection! (I actually have some frozen bananas I forgot about until now, so finding this collection was very timely).

  4. I was given 3 cases of bananas. Some are VERY ripe and some aren’t. What can I make with all these bananas that I can freeze and have for later?????? HELP! !!!

    • Bread works best for freezing, or muffins! Or, just freeze the bananas themselves, then defrost on the counter/in the fridge before you want to use them! The skins will turn brown but they’ll be perfect for baking.

  5. I just love to bake, however I will eat the whole thing. Love you small recipes
