My neighbor recently told me that she threw out a bunch of black bananas. I nearly had a heart attack right there on the sidewalk at the school bus stop. Black bananas are perfectly good for muffins, pancakes, bread, oatmeal, or cake. And, if you are not in the baking mood, you can freeze them with the peel on for later use.
Before we started our family, and I was still a working woman, I had a co-worker who brought me his old bananas about every ten days. With his bananas, I would bake two loaves of bread, one for him and one for us. In my mind it was the perfect arrangement. And, no bananas were wasted. Thankfully everyone at my house enjoys bananas and I can add them to my baked goods without anyone turning up their nose. So, when Crystal posted this recipe for Chocolate Banana Bread on her blog Money Saving Mom, I knew that my family would love it. And, I was right, chocolate goodness for breakfast. Yumm!

When I made my Chocolate Banana Bread I used white whole wheat flour and raw sugar and it turned out beautifully, as you can see in the picture above. This bread will also freeze well, if you have the will power not to eat it all at once! Thank you, Crystal for sharing this recipe.
