  • 2 overripe bananas
  • 1 1/2 cups old fasioned oats
  • 2 tbsp almond meal
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tsp fresh grated ginger
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup almonds
  • Coconut sugar (optional)
  1. In a bowl, combine bananas, oats, almond meal, coconut oil, egg yolk, fresh and ground ginger, cinnamon and salt. Beat with a mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in almonds. Let dough stand for about 10 minutes to thicken.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Spoon heaping tablespoons of the dough ont the prepared sheets: press dough down slightly to flatten. I desired, sprinkle with coconut sugar. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until slightly browned around the edges. Let cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.

As an alternative recipe, simply prepare the recipe as above, except omit the fresh ginger, ground ginger, and cinnamon. Stir in 1 cup chopped 70% cacao dark chocolate with the sliced almonds.

NOTE: For a bit of house cleaning, I have a few things in work for you, some are already implemented, some are in work. I have a slight technical difficulty with the Calorie Calculator emailing the calorie numbers. This glitch is in work to be fixed. However, the rest of the functions are working most excellent.

I have placed a chart under the Calorie Calculator Pro menu which gives you caloric expenditures for several exercises. This is for your basic reference in order to have an idea of how many calories specific exercises and other activities burn. Improvements are in work.

In work, I am building a data base of calorie and macronutrients for food and drink. Currently, I have over 500 food and drink items compiled and am building a data base which I will be able to expand on over time in order to keep the blog updated with constantly with additional items. This will be up soon under it’s own menu tab.

Brenda Sue and I are working hard to bring you the best nutrition and fitness blog available. Comments, questions and suggestions are always encouraged, welcome and will be answered.
