Default Problems with Cooking Blue Java Bananas?

The last couple of times I have tried to bake or fry my blue java bananas they have produced a high amount of tannins. I was testing the frying bananas as I was cooking them and all was fine until I cooked them just to long. I was attempting to get them really soft from spreading on German pancakes (or crepes). I had a similar problem with a prior bunch which I baked.

Is this a common problem with all bananas? Are there some tricks to prevent this from happening?

Are these being cooked green or ripe?

Sorry,

I was not clear on this. They are ripe. I harvested the entire bunch when a green banana split open. The first hand ripened in a couple of days after cutting the bunch off.

Cleaning them first with water can help I think, at least a woman from Suriname who lives here does it that way. The Tannine comes out of the Peel
I think and is on the surface of the Banana.

Soaking in water with salt first will remove some starches.
