¾ teaspoon baking soda

¼ cup buttermilk

1 cup mashed bananas (approximately 2 ripened bananas)

Just a quick tip: When you have bananas that are past their prime, but don’t necessarily want to make banana bread or muffins at the time, just peel the banana and put the banana in a Ziploc bag in the freezer. Some people like to store the bananas in the freezer, but they don’t peel them ahead of time-this causes an unnecessary struggle when you actually want to use them & you can lose some of the liquid that you need!

Add the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda & the buttermilk powder (if using dry buttermilk).
