None of us want to see our brown bananas go to waste.
So...it's banana bread...banana cake...banana bars...

Slice the over-ripe bananas open and slip into your measuring cup.

If you have a hand-held blender, that small appliance is perfect to create banana puree...
just what you need for baking!

1/2 cup walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom and sides of a 9x13 pan.
Using the muffin method method of mixing, 
combine the moist ingredients...
sugar, banana puree, oil and eggs.
