3 Uses for Overripe Bananas

Dan Churchill

Put your mature bananas to good use by making fluffy pancakes, chocolatey marshmallows, and vegan yogurt.



  • 2 bananas
  • 3.5 ounces dark chocolate
  • 1/3 cup coconut, shredded

Let's get Cooking...

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C).
  2. Cut a line lengthways in the bananas, opening the skin up, but not cutting all the way through to the other side of the flesh.
  3. Wrap bananas in foil, place on a lined baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes.
  4. Melt the chocolate in the microwave or over a double boiler. Drizzle melted chocolate over bananas. Top with coconut and enjoy.
