Banana bread is pretty universally adored, and any good banana bread baker will know you need really ripe bananas if your bread is going to turn out the flavoursome tasty treat we know and love. But bananas aren't generally sold extra-ripe and brown, so you have to wait around days till yours turn nice and dark.

Well M&S has come up with a clever solution to that dilemma, while also helping tackle food waste.

The supermarket is selling bags of extra-ripe bananas, too ripe to be sold in standard packs destined for fruit bowls, and they cost just 25p.

Announcing the move on Instagram the retailer wrote:"RIPE HERE. RIPE NOW! 🍌 🍌 Our new 25p banana bags contain at least three ripe bananas – ideal for baking banana bread."

Saving the bananas from becoming food waste, the handy packs even come with baking recipes to use them in.

Continuing in the caption; " 👨🍳 Each comes printed with two easy recipes: vegan banana cupcakes and everybody’s lockdown favourite, banana bread! Plus, you'll be doing your bit to fight food waste."

And those cupcakes look absolutely delicious! We've included a peek at the recipe card below.

Followers and customers in the comments were really impressed with the clever solution calling it a 'Fabulous' and 'Brilliant' idea.

One wrote; "Hats off to M&S yet again 😍," while another added; "Love this idea, well done M&S 👏👏"

Yellow bananas will no longer hold you back from tasty last-minute banana bread!
