There are no babies at my house, but I am making these en masse!! I’m adding chia seeds for extra fiber and a bit of protein powder (add more liquid/milk/non-dairy milk) for obvious added protein. I make a large batch, place them in between wax or parchment paper, and freeze them. In the mornings or if I get a sweet tooth, I pull one out of the freezer bag, microwave it, drizzle it with a bit of honey (although they are already naturally sweet from the banana), and enjoy this treat. I also love that I’ll never have to get rid of too-ripe-bananas again because I’m simply NOT going to make banana bread haha!
