This is a really great recipe; the combination of banana and peanut butter is just an all around good thing! Great texture, wonderful taste!
*Tip: Never throw out your very ripe bananas! I always peel them (leave them whole, so you can tell how many you have) and put in a large zipper freezer bag and freeze until you need them. If I know ahead of time that I need them I'll take what I need out and allow them to thaw in a bowl (or if I haven't planned ahead, I just pop them in the microwave for about 40 seconds or until thawed). You will also need to drain off any of the access liquid and discard. This works great and I almost always have bananas on hand to use for bread or cake!
