Bananas are one of my favorite fruits and they are easily one of my girls’ favorites too! The thing about me when it comes to bananas though, is that I like to eat them when they are still a little green. I don’t do bruises, and I definitely don’t eat bananas with speckles on them. To me, that means they are too ripe!
I know that’s super picky and all, but it gave me an idea…what if I made banana bread with bananas that weren’t over-riped? What if I made them using bananas in the way that I enjoyed them? So, I did– and they turned out awesome!
Usually, banana bread has little dark spots swirled within the bread. This did not have those little spots, so it made the bread look a lot more blonde (hence why I am calling it blonde banana bread). And, with using greener bananas, the bread did not turn out as sweet, but it tasted so yummy! Definitely a more acquired taste for me.
I know people like their bananas in different ways, but I encourage you to try this recipe just once! It still tasted like banana bread, but it was different. I really enjoyed it and I hope you do too! Check out the recipe below.
