One member asked me for a recipe containing a lot of green banana flour because it is one of the resistant starches, meaning it functions similar to soluble fiber. The recipe for pancakes that came with the package turned out gummy. So, I made a recipe for muffins, sweetened with pure maple syrup. So, don’t feel guilty when serving them for breakfast. They are super flavorful and moist. NO MIXER NEEDED!
In this article, I go over the best sources of resistant starches, how to bake with green banana flour, and include a recipe for gluten free green banana flour muffins. While you cannot use 100% green banana flour in baking, you can use enough to take advantage of its health benefits.

If you’ve never tasted kung pao chicken, you’re in for a really neat experience. Kung pao is not gluten free because it contains Chinese black vinegar and Chinese wine, which both contain gluten. However, these simple substitutes make a delicious version. Just as in the traditional version, this gluten free kung pao chicken contains Szechuan peppercorns. These magical peppercorns counteract the heat of the hot and spicy red peppers. It turns out that Szechuan peppercorns are not a pepper at all though. They cool the mouth so that you can tolerate the heat of the peppers. It’s something you just have to try at least once in your life. Some people get hooked! We are! You can make this version sweet, savory, spicy, or mild. Continue reading “Gluten Free Kung Pao Chicken”
