The comedian Ryan Styles once said, “Never interrupt me when I’m eating a banana.” Well said, Mr. Styles. Bananas are so tasty and versatile.

You can’t go wrong when making recipes with bananas! You’ll find everything here from banana bread to vegan banana cakes!

Besides, if you’re like me, we end up buying a lot of bananas and we’re not always able to eat them before they brown to a point where they’re inedible in their more natural state.

That means we need some ripe banana recipes! For example, I love adding ripe bananas in a cake!

A mashed banana makes an excellent egg replacement for many recipes. That’s a handy trick for veganizing your favorite recipes. Bananas will leave a subtle or strong banana flavor to a recipe so be prepared.

About Bananas

Here are some interesting tidbits about bananas found on Wikipedia:

  • Bananas actually grow pointing up
  • The banana fruit develops from the flower of plant which is referred to as the Banana Heart. Ahh, that’s so sweet!
  • Bananas have a high potassium content. I mean, really high. In fact, they have so much potassium, bananas are considered slightly radioactive. Kinda scary, eh? But don’t be alarmed, we potassium in our diet because it’s necessary for heart, kidney and muscles (to name a few).
  • There are numerous varieties of bananas cultivated across the planet, but we see mostly just one, the cavendish. Believe it or not, the cavendish is not the most flavorful banana, but it is easy to transport so that’s why it is so readily available at our local grocery store.
