Samah Dada turns overripe bananas into 2 sweet treats for summer

When life gives you overripe bananas, make dessert!

Banana bread isn’t the only thing you can make with an overripe banana. On TODAY All Day's "#Cooking," food blogger and cookbook author Samah Dada uses brown bananas to make chocolate chip-banana bread bars and a dairy-free banana cream cheesecake.

A no-bake treat that’s a cross between cheesecake and an ice cream bar, this vegan dessert will be your secret weapon all summer. Both the filling and the crust can be made in your blender ... because convenience is a gorgeous thing!

If you’ve ever wished that your morning bowl of oatmeal was portable, then you’re in luck! I love whipping up these not-too-sweet oat bars because they are so simple to throw together (this recipe is a one-bowl wonder) and are perfect for a sweet breakfast, delicious snack or as a better-for-you dessert.
