How to Freeze: Freshly baked banana nut bread can be stored in the freezer for up to a month. Make sure your bread has cooled completely, then wrap it in plastic wrap and aluminum foil. You can also slice your bread before freezing – that way you can just grab as many slices as you need without having to defrost the whole loaf.
When it comes to baking with bananas, brown and slightly over-ripe bananas are perfect. Brown bananas are sweeter and have a more pronounced flavor than they do when they’re golden yellow. They’re also easier to mash and better incorporate into your batter.
If your bananas aren’t quite ripe enough yet, don’t despair! Place them in a brown paper bag and put them somewhere warm (like the top of your fridge) for a couple days. The paper bag will help trap the ethylene gas that the fruit gives off, converting the starch in the banana into sugar.
