Did you promise the office your famous banana bread loaf only to find out your mother threw out the offensive-but-perfectly-ripened bananas you’d been curing above your fridge for the occasion? Fear not! Place the bananas, peels and all, on a cookie sheet and roast them at 300F until they feel mushy. Then make our favorite Banana Bread recipe. You’re welcome.
Place bananas (remove the stickers first) on a cookie sheet lined with parchment or foil. Bake at 300F for 20-30 minutes, or until you feel them breaking down by touching the peel. Use as you would perfectly ripened bananas.
