    I would peel them and freeze them. Then use them to make smoothies - add one frozen banana, a cup of milk of your choice, and a container of flavored yogurt. Add extra fruit if you wish. The frozen banana makes it nice and thick and cold.

    Be sure to peel them first - ask me how I know this!!

    This is exactly what I was going to suggest ... and what I do with my leftover bananas!

    If you wish to use the frozen bananas in your baking, no problem ... just let them thaw a little and add as usual.

    I freeze my bananas with the peel on.
    They are very easy to peel with a knife when frozen, may be it depends how hard your freezer is set on

    I use those in smoothies or in muffins. For the muffins I peel and let defrost may be 1/2 hour
    Here is my recipe:

    3 bananas
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 Egg
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 1/2 cup flour
    1/3 cup melted butter
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    nuts, chocolate chips are optional
    1-Mix bananas, sugar and egg
    2- Add melted butter
    3-Add dry ingredients
    Cook 20 minutes @ 350-375 degrees

    12 muffins - They are the preferred muffins in this house :-)

    I got a recipe off the radio for pumpkin muffins. Can of pumpkin, one box spice cake mix. Nothing else. But I decided to add a egg to help it a little. Recipe was originally for muffins, 350 for about 25-30 minutes. delicious. So, had some ripe bananas, decided to try them. Mashed them up, added egg to them and made a banana spice cake. 350 for 35-40 minutes.
    Have also done it with a can of applesauce, box of spice cake mix and one egg. Used a carrot cake once too. Was pretty good. Can toss in 1/2 cup raisins, or nuts or both. Be creative. I put mine in cake pan, smaller than a 9x13 but not the square one. Can also put in large loaf pan. This is very versitile and good. Try any kind of cake flavor. I prefer Duncan Hines myself. Creme cheese frosting. WOW! But if I put raisins in it, I don't touch it. DH takes care of it.
    My stash keeps me in stitches!

    I like oatmeal with fruit in it too.
    I just use the regular recipe from the bag of oatmeal ... and add in whatever fruit I want.
    Most times, I add some cinnamon too!
    Then zap it in the microwave.

    And oh ... I use milk instead of water ... much more creamier and nicer than when just using water.
