      You’re very welcome Lala. I’ve been searching for and making recipes to use up bananas. lol
      This past week, I evidently bought too many or they’re ripening too quickly…but I’m trying to use them up as quick as I can.
      Hope you and your family enjoys them!

      You can keep bananas in the refrigerator. The skin will turn a little black but the bananas will keep longer.

      How does it affect the texture?
      I’m one of “those” weird texture folks. 😉 lol
      Honestly, I prefer very firm bananas…as in just has started turning yellow…but not all the way yellow.
      I don’t mind using ripe/softened bananas in recipes, but can’t eat them raw like that. Yep, you guessed it…it’s the texture…lol
