    Hello, hello, hello!   Here we have a new day and a new recipe! 



    If you have read my previous posts, you may probably realize that I avoid using white flour and refined sugar on my recipes. There are healthier alternatives for them. Besides, I like alternative tastes! So, why wouldn’t you use them? 

    Mostly, there are limited options for gluten-free, sugar-free or flourless foods when you eat outside. The situation is similar at the supermarkets. Either the options are limited or the prices are high. Personally, I don’t agree with this. Finding a sugar-free product should be as easy as finding a sugar-containing product. I think that if availability of these types of healthier products were higher, it would increase the consumptions of such food. People tend to consume the food they can easily find. (Sometimes me too btw) Because we are so busy in our daily life and it’s not always possible to afford the healthier alternatives. This is a subject I want to raise the awareness of, because eating healthier alternatives such as sugar-free or white flourless food would be better for the mental and physical health of all of us.

    Bananas are a good alternative to refined sugar, so if you like the taste you can just switch your sugar jar with them. Some weeks ago, I wrote a recipe for banana bread. If you haven’t read it, do check it out below: https://fashionpotluck.com/food/quarantine-recipes-delicious-banana-bread  

    “Banana cookies”   Even saying these two words make me hungry. I will not make you wait any longer:

    Ingredients: 

    -2 ½ bananas

    -1 cup of oats

    -Ground cinnamon

    -Vanilla (5 grams) or honey (1 tablespoon)

    -Dark chocolate chips

    When I made them last Sunday I couldn’t add vanilla and chocolate chips because, we didn’t have any. I added a bit of milk and honey to get a better flavor and I liked the taste. Next time, I want to try them with vanilla and chocolate chips too.

    Recipe:

    -Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. (350 Fahrenheit)

    -Mash the bananas in a bowl.

    -Add the oats and stir. 

    -Add the vanilla or honey, cinnamon and dark chocolate chips.

    -Stir everything.

    -Give them a cookie shape.

    -Bake them for 15-20 minutes.
