  8. Store your loaves wrapped in aluminum foil in the refrigerator.

Additional Comments:

Put bananas in the freezer when they start looking icky. They'll look worse and turn to mush, but they'll be perfect for your banana bread.

This is a great make-ahead snack. The loaves taste even better the next day.
