I freeze bananas that are starting to turn brown and then thaw to use with this recipe.
I love this recipe because it only uses one mixing bowl and one loaf pan.
We love to double the recipe and freeze a loaf for later.
Can also cook in smaller loaf pans but decrease cooking time.
For muffins, bake at same temperature for 18-20 minutes.
