Bag O’ Bananas Saves Me a Bunch

I scored an 8 pound bag of bananas for $1.48!

Whoo!

I try to find those as often as I can, because not only do we eat as many bananas as we can possible stuff into our faces, but there are also tons left over for bread, cake or muffins!

Here’s my favorite Banana Bread Recipe:

Ripe Bananas   Mashing Bananas   Chocolate Chip Walnut Banana Bread

Chocolate Chip Walnut Banana Bread

Cream together:

2/3 cup sugar

1/3 cup shortening

Add 3 bananas and mash them with a fork

Add 2 eggs and mix well.

Combine:

1 3/4 cup flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

Add to wet mixture and mix well.

Add enough chocolate chips and walnut pieces to make you say “Oh man, that’s going to be good”.  Sometimes, I also add some flaked coconut!

Grease a loaf pan or cupcake pan and pour batter in.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 45-60 minutes.

Cool, remove from pan and enjoy!

I saved $3.80 just on the bananas, plus out of this bag, I made three loaves of bread and two 9″ by 13″ cakes.  Banana bread in the store is a small loaf for $4.29 and any 9″ by 13″ sheet cake at our grocery store is at least $15.00.

MONEY SAVED: 38.67!!
