Good Evening all!

I have loads of bananas to use up and other than, a.eating them as is or b. adding them to cereal/yoghurts/porridge what can I do with them? Id love to make some banana bread, but well my 'old' recipe is not an option! Do any of you clever people have a suggestion for my bananas? :confused:

Many Thanks xx

SOme people have claimed a frozen banana is like an ice lolly without the syns so you could peel and chuck in the freezer?

I used to love Banana with bread and butter before i was on sw but i am thinking banana on toast with honey would be good, i have also seen someone on here have it on toast with chocolate spread.

Banana sandwich! Yummmmmy!

Also, if you get a Mullerlight, slice some banana and use some light squirty cream for a sundae type dessert. 12.5g of light squirty cream is only 1 syn!!!

Hi! I did a bit of a search and found this recipe on here for banana bread/cake:

Banana bread/cake with pics
Made britmums orange and almond cake and wondered if it could be adapted with other fruits so today I made a Banana and cinnamon cake it wasnt too sweet so more like a bread with a cake texture am thinking it would be nice with sweetened quark anyhow it was huge so cut it into 9 slices at 2syns a slice.

56g/2oz self raising flour 10syns
6 eggs
cup of sweetener
1 tsp of baking powder 1/2 syn
2 medium bananas mashed 8 syns
1tsp of cinnamon think next time I will put 2 in wasnt enough really

preheat oven to 180

I separated 2 of the eggs and whisked the 2 egg whites in a bowl and put to one side put all the the other ingredients including the 2 egg yolks you seperated in another bowl and whisk, once nicely mixed fold in the 2 egg whites until there are no big lumps pour mixture into a sandwich tin, i used a silicon one it only just all fit in!
now I didnt time this lol i think about 40 mins after about 20 I covered the top with foil to stop it burning once out of the oven leav in the tin to cool for a bit then turn out and cut into 9 slices easier than it sounds cut into thirds then each thrid into 3 it works out to 2 syns a slice plus 1/2 syn over so I am going to count one slice at 2.5 the rest at 2 syns I then sprinkled sweetener over the top this will melt and make the top a bit sticky mmmmmm

I thought mashing bananas (or any fruit) released sugars so youd have to syn them?!?!
It's not that it releases sugars it's that if you puree a banana, say in a smoothie, then it becomes too easy to eat unconciously (like drinking orange juice as opposed to eating an orange)

If you puree or cook any fruit you have to syn it
