This is the Best Meal Prep Hack!

I’ve been freezing bananas for ages now, especially since I’m a big smoothie fanatic. But there’s actually so many things, in addition to smoothies, I find myself using frozen bananas for. There’s my paleo banana bread that’s always on repeat or these extra chewy banana oatmeal cookies. But, I’ll go over more options below.

Needless to say, it never hurts to prep some frozen bananas. It’s quick, easy, and won’t take up that much space in your freezer! And hey, it may even encourage you to make more healthy recipes. That’s always a bonus right?
