Expert Tips

Use the pulse feature on your food processor to finely chop nuts. Or seal chopped nuts in a resealable plastic bag, and use a rolling pin to crush them.

Too many overly ripe bananas? Simply peel bananas, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and freeze. Thaw the amount you need for recipes, such as this one!
