    1. Hi, Ginger. There are many options for this. Examples include topping pancakes and waffles, on toast, and in oatmeal. You might even consider adding it to ice cream, cheesecake, yogurt, and peanut butter sandwiches. Please let us know if you find other ways to use roasted bananas, too. Thanks!

  1. This sounds delicious! I’m wondering-If I were to prepare a few bananas and have this on hand-what would be the best way to store it? In a jar on the counter? Or keep it in the fridge?
