People have the best intentions when they buy bananas at the store. Bananas are low in calories, naturally fat-free and full of vitamins and minerals so they should make a great snack. Once they get home, they sit, lonely, on the counter waiting for someone to include them in the week's meal plan. Inevitably, they start to ripen and become browned beyond desire.
In comes this slow cooker banana bread recipe: the perfect way to turn undesirable bananas into something the whole family will enjoy. It's ready after four hours on low in the slow cooker and doesn't heat up the kitchen while cooking. You can add walnuts to the banana bread for a little extra crunch, but substitute pecans, almonds or go nut-free if you wish.
