How to tell if a banana is ripe enough for banana bread

The Guide to Overripe Bananas

FAQ: When is a banana ripe enough to bake with?

Answer: Is your banana beautiful, yellow, and blemish-free? If yes, it’s not ready! The best bananas for baking are so ripe they’re almost black. Soft, mushy, ugly bananas on the verge of being fodder for your compost bin are perfect for baking up some Classic Banana Bread or maybe a Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Bars with a Peanut Butter Oat Streusel. It’s so yummy! Hope this helps! Enjoy! ❤️
