Bananas are my youngest son’s favorite fruit, so we always have plenty of them on hand—and that usually means that we also have plenty of ones that browned too quickly.  This recipe is the perfect (and tastiest!) way too use up ripe bananas. (By the way, you can freeze ripe bananas; just peel and place in an airtight freezable container.)   

Try substituting the walnuts with sunflower seeds, raisins or chocolate chips.  These are perfect for breakfast, snacking or packed into a lunch box!
