Ah..bananas. They are sorta an annoying fruit, aren't they? Maybe not annoying, but, not very practical. At least, at my house they aren't. I buy them, because, my kids say 'don't forget bananas' when the grocery list is being made. So, I buy them. Two get eaten. One is split between my 6 year old and 3 year old. The other is eaten by myself. Usually, because, I don't want to waste them. Then..they sit.
What to do with them? I've made bread, cookies, brownies, cupcakes, pancakes, shakes, cake, and even, a cute little snowman. Not one doughnut though. Until now. You need to really try these my friends. They are delicious, little banana delights topped off with a seriously sinful Nutella glaze. Plus, sprinkles, that are purely for fun.
A delicious way to make bananas a little more practical.
