Overripe bananas. Lots of em.

My housemates and I just dumpstered the most ridiculous amount of overripe bananas.

I made pancakes this morning and have three loaves of banana bread in the oven.
While we could eat eighteen loaves, I'm pretty sure we shouldn't.

Any other suggestions?


Preferably not smoothies or milkshakes. Something I can share with the house.

Winter Breakfast

I am looking for a good recipe for a winter breakfast that will be quick and easy before i got to work. Last year I would make a bowl of oatmeal (just the regular quaker non-instant stuff) with water and then put in some brown sugar (to give it some flavor), flax seeds, cranberries and a huge spoonful of peanut butter. Basically, plenty of protein and my omegas for the day. But is there something a little healthier than oatmeal out there, that I wouldn't have to put sugar in? Or just any kind of fun ideas. I don't have tons of time in the mornings, but since it snows a lot here, warm is always good, and something that can get me through my morning of seven one-year-olds without feeling overly-full or exhausted by ten.

Thanks!
