Ripened Bananas

  • Bananas *


  • Preheat your oven to 300°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil for easy cleanup.
  • Bake banana(s) for 30 to 40 minutes, until blackened and soft to the touch.
  • Cool on the baking sheet until cool enough to handle. Peel and transfer banana to a bowl and mash so that it cools more quickly. Cool completely before using in recipes.


*Do not use completely green bananas.
