Freeze Your Ripe Bananas for Use in Baking Recipes

These Spiced Banana Bread Mini Loaves are so easy to make and a great way to use up overripe bananas. I typically buy a bunch of bananas every week, sometimes they all get eaten, sometimes not.

I like to freeze any ripe or overripe bananas that can’t be used right away. To freeze, I just add the bananas, in their peels, to a resealable bag and place it in the freezer. I then pull the frozen bananas out when needed, to make baked goods such as these Spiced Banana Bread Mini Loaves. To use frozen bananas, just let them defrost on the counter or in the fridge, before peeling and using.

About a month ago, our family moved from Carlisle, MA to Pennsylvania. Before the move, I tried to empty out both the fridge and freezer as much as possible. I came across a bag of frozen, overripe bananas and decided to make these Spiced Banana Bread Mini Loaves.

I use cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves in these Spiced Banana Bread Mini Loaves. This spice combination adds such a nice flavor which complements the banana nicely and gives the loaves an absolutely amazing aroma.

  1. Thank you so much for this!! I cut it in half to make 3 mini loaves and my kids devoured them!! I always have the hardest time with banana bread not turning out but this recipe is PERFECT!! Saving forever!! Already making a second round of them this week!!

    1. Hi Kate, thanks so much for your comment, I’m delighted that you and your family enjoyed this recipe!

      1. Hi Rebecca, I haven’t made half of this recipe before, but since it is a quick bread, I think you could halve the recipe and use either one or two eggs and it will come out fine. You could also use one whole egg and one egg yolk. Or, you could use one and a half eggs. For the half egg, break an egg into a glass measuring cup or small bowl and then whisk it, pour out half of the whisked mixture to use in the recipe and save the rest for scrambled eggs or another recipe.

        Hope you give it a try and enjoy, let me know how it goes if you do!

  2. These look so good. I have to try them with the nutmeg and cinnamon. May I ask where in Pa. did you move to??? I am from NEPA near Scranton.
    Thanks so much visiting!!
    Hugs,
