Are overripe bananas good for banana quick bread?

Some of us love to eat different banana quick bread recipes and some prefer the moist one, but how to make moist banana quick bread? Does the banana we use in the recipe really matters? I already made a lot of banana quick bread recipes depending on the texture I prefer. This chocolate banana quick bread is a carbohydrate-rich food which gives a unique crunchy outer layer and moist taste inside. The carbohydrate components of the all-purpose flour and chocolate gives your body a boost of energy.

Appearance of the bananas used in this recipe

The best bananas to use if you want a moist outcome are those overripe bananas the appearance of the banana peel has black or brown spots or streaks and a bit darker (not the plain yellow). Are they safe to eat? Yes they are (just make sure to check the fruit before mixing). Actually some studies says that the darker the skin the better, they also added that it gives a higher vitamin C and antioxidant levels. So if there are overripe bananas in your fruit stand don’t put them in the trash bin yet! Make this recipe instead.

Note: Excessive consumption of food is not good to our health and can bring a negative result or bad effects in our body. Always eat the right kind and the right amount of food.

    Agreed, I go overripe bananas all the way! ☺️ Sometimes I also add almond meal in place of some of the flour – helps to make it super soft and moist.
