Banana Bread

We buy a lot of bananas, and we never eat them all before they’re too ripe.  (Seriously, why do they go from green to overly ripe in 4 days????) If I’m not ready to bake right then, or only have one too-ripe banana, I peel it and freeze it.  When I have 3-4 bananas to use, I bake banana bread.  This is a recipe I found a year or two ago, and it serves me well.  Hope you enjoy it!
