Banana Cinnamon ‘Porridge’
This dairy and grain free ‘porridge’ will give you energy and satiety to keep you going strong until lunch. The key ingredient green banana flour contains resistant starch, which is a superfood for our microbiome (gut flora). When our gut bugs consume resistant starch, they produce beneficial short-chain fatty acids, particularly butyrate, which is the preferred fuel for our enterocytes (cells that line the gut wall). Resistant starch also assists to balance blood sugar levels, increase absorption of nutrients and decrease absorption of toxins.
Free from: gluten / grains / refined sugar / lactose / soy / dairy
Ideas: You can swap the banana for any fruit, fresh or dried, add sliced nuts, nut butter, other spices, maple syrup, this is THE most versatile recipe! Green banana flour is very filling, being a resistant starch, so this bowl of goodness should keep you going for many hours!
