Bag of Bananas Saves Me a Bunch

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

Whoo!

I enjoy finding these, because, not only do we eat as many bananas as we can possible stuff into our faces, but we also have tons left over for making bread, cake or muffins!

Here’s my favorite Banana Bread Recipe:

Chocolate Chip Walnut Banana Bread

Cream together:Chocolate Chip Walnut Banana Bread Recipe

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!

BENEFITS:

  • Homemade is always better than store-bought
  • Wonderful aroma fills your home
  • No additives or preservatives

I saved $4.64 just on the bananas.  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 $4.50 and any 9″ by 13″ sheet cake at our grocery store is at least $15.00.

MONEY SAVED: 43.50!!
