I think the old lemon adage is overplayed. Instead, when life gives you mushy bananas, make banana bread.
Banana bread is a reminder that second chances exist. That you can make something sweet and satisfying out of a mushy, brownish-black pile of overripe fruit you’ve neglected for days (and days).
I found an amazing paleo banana bread recipe from Slim Palate. I didn’t make any changes to the original recipe, and would not in the future. It was perfect, as is. (So perfect that I had to give a bunch of it away so I wouldn’t eat the whole loaf!)
AND it’s gluten free, grain free and paleo…so no regrets about indulging a bit!
