Yes! Use the liquid too.

Yes that is what I do for banana bread. Freezing them causes the water in the cells to rupture the cells walls so once they thaw you have a lot of liquid to help make the baked goods moist.

Let them sit out on the counter for a few hours then thaw the rest of the way in the fridge.
I've been known to put them in the microwave, too, when the urge to make banana muffins strikes and the only ripe bananas on the premises are rock hard in the freezer. ;o)

Absolutely! I do it all the time. I tend to have big eyes when I buy bananas so there are always frozen bananas in the freezer.

I freeze them all the time for smoothies, no reason to ever throw a banana away.
