I don’t often eat bananas because they are pretty starchy and my desk job doesn’t really make me need to replenish my glycogen stores…i.e. I’m not doing a lot of heavy exercise (a big topic at Primal Con Tulum). Recently I had some banana and noticed I didn’t get a huge blood sugar spike or the “sugar” crash that happens when I have too many carbs.  It must be my body’s way of telling me I needed the extra potassium :) Anyway, I decided to turn the banana into an easy cookie recipe that doesn’t require any additional sweetener.  It has all the flavors of banana bread and the natural sweetness from the bananas.

Bananas may be a no no for some, but I wanted to share a naturally sweetened treat when you’re wanting some banana flavor.
