Introducing my new favorite way to use overripe bananas! I could eat this entire healthy almond butter banana bread skillet in one sitting, it’s so good!
Overripe bananas? No problem.
I’ve been known to purchase excess bananas knowing they’ll ripen too quickly, fore the sole purpose of making banana bread. It’s one of my all time favorite baked goods, and has been through childhood and college.
With my freezer getting full of overripe frozen bananas, I knew it was high time to bake up some banana bread. I already have a few banana bread recipes on the blog (here and here), and I wanted to do something a little different this time. So, instead of pouring the batter into a loaf pan, I poured it right into my cast iron skillet!
The result? As I mentioned before, I could really devour the entire skillet in one sitting.
