Banana Recipes

One of the most popular searches on my blog every single week is from readers looking for healthy banana recipes.

I know bananas are such a polarizing food – you either love them or hate them! Personally, I love them not just for the taste, but also because they’re so perfect for sweetening recipes naturally, without any added sugar.

 Often referred to as “nature’s candy bar,” bananas offer a host of important nutrients (potassium, vitamin B, fiber, etc.), and I always make sure to have a few on hand for using in smoothies, brownies, oatmeal, healthy fudge, cakes, pies, ice cream recipes, and other healthy desserts or breakfasts.

Easy Banana Recipes

Tip: If you ever have overripe bananas that you aren’t yet ready to eat, don’t throw them away, even if they’ve turned brown. You can absolutely freeze bananas for later use.

Simply peel, cut into a few pieces, and freeze in a single layer in an airtight container. The frozen bananas are great for making banana soft serve, or you can thaw them and use in baked goods as well.

Or heat the ripe banana until it’s all nice and caramelized–I call this The Melted Banana Trick–then stir into oatmeal instead of sugar or spread on toast to make the best peanut butter banana sandwich of your life.

Do you have any favorite ways to use bananas? Or suggestions for more easy & healthy banana recipes you’d like to see that aren’t on this list?

Personally, I think this post could really use some more brownies! But then again, I think every post could use more brownies.

Also maybe granola bars or cinnamon rolls?

    Yes, I have an idea that I haven’t seen on your blog! Have you heard of banana milk? You blend a frozen banana with a cup of water, and maybe a dash of salt and cinnamon. I haven’t tried it yet, but it’s supposed to be a vegan milk substitute, like nut milk.

      Update: I tried the banana milk. It was…different, like banana-flavored water. It did make a sweet, banana-flavored substitute for almond milk in my coffee, and I imagine that it would taste good on oatmeal or cereal too. I would make it again!

    A monkey’s favorite recipe page. The blueberry banana bread, single-serving banana muffin, breakfast banana pops, banana dole whip, vegan chocolate cake look FREAKING EFFING GLORIOUS. I made the vegan chocolate cake for a birthday party last year and it was such a hit!

  3. Roshana Hall says

    one of my favourite banana recipes is a banana upside down cake, you could try doing a vegan version of that!

    Bananas can be incorporated into any dessert. With its natural sweetness and nutritional benefits, it would definitely upgrade your favorite dessert. If I could rate your recipes, I would definitely give it 5 stars. Thank you for sharing this post.
