These are sooo sooo delicious! "Really great appetizer for the summer or anytime. Every time I have served these everyone wants the recipe...and they're so easy! Just be sure to refrigerate the cream cheese mixture overnight!"
This is the first and still the best banana bread I've ever made, out of my Better Homes & Gardens cookbook that was a wedding gift 20 years ago. I've tried a few other recipes since then (including the most popular online recipes, as well as other people's), and nothing matches this.
To make it healthier but still taste the same, I replace some of the white flour with whole wheat and some of the sugar with stevia.
I mash then freeze bananas that have gotten too ripe to eat, and thaw them for the bread.
