Organic Banana Flour
We can give you more than one reason to go bananas for banana flour! Made from 100% unripe green bananas, this all-natural flour is loaded with nutrients. It’s especially high in potassium and resistant starch, a prebiotic fiber that supports digestive health and lowers blood sugar. Just like wheat flour, banana flour can be used in everyday baking to create delicious baked goods. Using banana flour in baking recipes makes it easy to turn a conventional recipe into a paleo one. Go bananas or go home! Banana flour is naturally gluten-free and non-GMO.
How to Use Banana Flour
Baking: The general rule of thumb is to use 30% LESS banana flour than suggested flour (i.e. 2/3 cup banana flour in place of every 1 cup of regular flour). Banana flour has a high starch content so you can use less flour than you’d normally use in everyday recipes. Since banana flour acts similarly to wheat flour in baked goods, it can be used on its own or in combination with other flours.
Other uses: For banana flour recipes, try substituting banana flour for regular flour when making brownies, cookies or waffles (see above for suggested ratios). Add a scoop of banana flour to your morning smoothie or bowl of oatmeal for a boost of nutrition. Alternatively, you can use it as a thickener for soups and sauces. Banana flour also lends health benefits to homemade baby foods.
Tastes and Textures
Banana flour has a very mild banana taste that is nearly indistinguishable in baked goods. It produces baked goods with light and fluffy textures, which is ideal for muffins, breads, pancakes, cookies and more.
Health Benefits of Banana Flour
1) Potassium: Each 1/4 cup serving of banana flour provides 330mg of potassium. Snacking on baked goods made from banana flour is a great way to boost your daily potassium intake.
2) Resistant Starch: Banana flour is one of the richest food sources of resistant starch: a prebiotic fiber that promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut. It can also help control blood sugar levels and keep you feeling full longer, which supports weight loss.
3) No Additives: Made 100% from bananas, this all-natural flour contains no additives, preservatives, sweeteners, chemicals, or any other unnatural ingredients that are hard to pronounce!
