    Over ripe bananas

    Shop Now
    Hmmm... I'm suddenly in possession of a handful of over ripe bananas. I would love to make some Paleo friendly Banana bread/muffins... or something tasty anyway. Any recipes out there? Maybe some banana pancakes even

    Hello Jenny - you could use almond meal (ground almonds) or coconut flour, or ground walnuts, add egg or ground flax meal to bind, some baking powder or soda (is this part of paleo plan, I am new so dont know)? some raisins/dates for sweetness (soak in warm water first and mash). I did make some nice pancakes once from a bend of millet meal and polenta(corn), but this depends on if your system tolerates these grains or not? they are gluten free but not grain-free! Many people seem to use coconut flour or almond meal these days which is grain free. Remember, if using coconut flour, to use enough egg or flax meal mixed with water, as coconut flour being high in fibre soaks up liquid. Just have a go, and experiment in the kitchen. I recently made muffins/little cakes using half coconut flour and half almond meal(ground almond nuts). Adding spices is nice too, ie cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, etc or ginger if the weather is cold! check the muffins dont' burn in oven, these flours bake differently than wheat flour, maybe a lower temperate - do some searching on 'net. Regards, Amanda

    slice them up, freeze them, then run through food processor. You'll get paleo banana ice cream!

    also you could throw them in a bowl with eggs and your favorite nut butter and mix super well for a basic pancake batter.

    I throw 1 banana with 1 c of egg whites and microwave for a minute, mix and microwave again for the lightest souffle! You can also peel & freeze them for future smoothies.

    Wait. Why not just eat them? They taste better black, anyway.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    I love custard made with a mashed banana, a can of coconut milk, 3 eggs and whatever spices you like. You could double the banana, but I prefer a stronger coconut flavor.

    I keep peeled whole bananas in the freezer for smoothies.

    I don't 'primalize' baked goods. Its the real deal, or none at all. So yes, I bake/eat the occasional dessert for my family and enjoy it immensely. And then pay the gassy, bloated price later. And its totally worth it.
