Banana cream

When you want to make banana bread and you don't happen to have any fresh bananas that are over-ripe and ready to go, you can take this from your pantry.

Blend 5 bananas in a blender until smooth.

Pour onto plastic wrap or flex sheets.

Dehydrate for 3 hours or until brittle.

Crumble and break into pieces and store in a clean jar with an oxygen absorber packet (or use FoodSaver to vacuum seal).

When needed, measure out about 1/3 cup of pieces and powder for banana bread recipes.

Could this be rehydrated and used as a puree (like baby food)?

I don't see any reason why not. I'd take the dried banana and mix with some boiling water and let it sit.
