Uses of frozen bananas?

I haven't been able to find a good banana bread recipe. Most of the ones I see are either too bland, too dry, or too sticky to really work for me.

If someone could share a good banana bread recipe, or give me other possible uses for frozen bananas (I have about 15 frozen medium-size ones) that would be great!

  1. Frozen Bananas, O-M-G!
    What memories ......Summers on Balboa Island, CA......Frozen bananas on a stick, dipped in chocolate and rolled in nuts. Doesn't get much better than that.

    1. Don't forget to put the stick in with the peel on the banana. One tip I saw on some show that featured this.

      We use frozen fresh fruit for smoothies and protein drinks around here. You can also bake desserts with frozen bananas where color is not an issue.

      1. I usually use mushy overripe bananas for banana milk, but I think frozen ones would work too--I'd probably up the flavorings and use less ice in the glass to compensate for the state of the bananas, but otherwise I'd think the same recipe would work that I posted here:

        1. There used to be an ice cream parlor in the West Portal neighborhood of SF whose specialty was the "fudge monkey" heh...It was a banana on a stick dipped in melted chocolate, then chopped peanuts and frozen.

          1. You can also just purée them (still frozen) with a little yogurt - really just a spoonful or two - and whatever flavouring you want. Makes a nice banana frozen yogurt/sorbet.
