Are Bananas Healthy?

Nutrition

Bananas are a great source of:

  • Vitamin B6
  • Fibre
  • Potassium
  • Magnesium
  • Vitamin C
  • Manganese

According to Harvard, one medium ripe banana, provides about 110 calories, 0 gram fat, 1 gram protein, 28 grams carbohydrate, 15 grams of naturally occurring sugar, 3 grams fibre, and 450 mg potassium.

Best Bananas for baking

One of my main reasons for making Banana Cake or Banana Bread is to use up Bananas when they start getting brown lots spots.

Is Eating a Banana With Brown Spots Bad for You?

The brown spots simply indicate that the banana has gone from unripe to ripe. It’s perfectly safe. It’s perfectly safe until the point where the whole banana becomes brown. But I don’t usually wait for that long before using them as ingredients.

First of all, you need the following ingredients:

  • Raisins – be careful as many bands have added sugar.
  • Crashed Almonds
  • Overripe Bananas
  • Whole Wheat or Rolled Oats
  • Dried Banana Chips, 100% pure with no sugar (Optional)
    • You can also use dark chocolate chips as a substitute.

I Avoid Sugar in My Baking

I don't use any refined sugar, (except a tiny amount for activating yeast in some recipes) cane sugar or any type of syrups or sweeteners in my baking. When required, I use alternatives such as fruits, fresh or dried bananas, raisings, any dried unsweetened fruits and cinnamon.

Methods in making Banana Cake:

First Step: Mash bananas with a fork or potato masher and add the raisins, crushed almonds, and whole wheat or rolled oats.

Second Step: Continuously knead for about 10 minutes until all ingredients are intact.

Third Step: Bake in 180° heat for about 30 minutes. – I used an Air Fryer instead of an oven

Fourth Step: Top it with any toppings of your choice! I like to add mine with cinnamon, sliced banana, and crushed almonds.

Fifth Step: Enjoy your healthy Banana Cake with no added sugar, salt or oil!

    This is so interesting and I never saw this recipe before. It’s easy to make. However, the dry banana chips that I can find are all salty, so this might not suit a desert.
