Does anybody else crave snacks continuously during the day when the weather is cooler? I certainly do and its always baked goods. Lucky I always have a healthy baked stash on hand like these gluten-free, vegan banana and chocolate chip cookies. I found a forgotten jar of green banana flour in the pantry and decided to use it in this cookie recipe.
Have you baked with banana flour before? Green banana flour is high in potassium and fibre as well as being an excellent source of resistant starch. Resistant starch is fermented by healthy intestinal bacteria and turned into short-chain-fatty-acids (SCFAs). Hear SCFAs play a vital role in the human body including being a source of energy for the cells in your gut.
