40 Recipes To Use Overripe Bananas

40 recipes to use overripe bananas
Overripe bananas make the perfect ingredient for vegan cakes as they bind the batter so well you do not have to use eggs. You’ll find more ideas for baking with egg substitutes here.

They are not only more flavoursome but are also easier to digest than unripe bananas as the high starch content changes to sugar during the ripening process.

Personally, I love cooking banana bread so I look out for overripe bananas and often get discounted ones  from the greengrocer. They might not look their best but still have plenty of uses.

Here I have rounded up some of the best recipes (beyond banana bread) where you can use them.

Don’t forget to bookmark this page so that next time you find some spotty or brown overripe bananas in your fruit bowl you don’t throw them away.
