1. Bananas Cookbook: 101 Recipes with Bananas – G&R Publishing

You will be a little taken aback by the tiny size of this book. It’s pretty small and spiral bound but for just $4.50 this book is worth every penny. It has some really fun, entertaining recipes and there are a 101 of them so you are not going to get bored very easily. Every recipe is made with the title ingredient.

The drawback of this banana cookbook is that a large part of the recipes is muffins/bread/cake related, so the non-dessert variety is a little restricted. The instructions are a little concise and there are no illustrations. However, you will savor every dish you try and everything is guaranteed to turn out yummy.
