Healthy Biscotti... Is that even possible?

healthy recipe Oct 17, 2021

When I have overripe bananas , I think let's bake.

Overipe bananas are very sweet because as they ripen the starch turns to sugar.

They are sweet enough  to bake with and not need to use added sugar.

I originally developed this recipe for the Jewish French Magazine Holiday issue.

My teenagers loved them so much we know make them all the time.

 This a super easy, healkthy and delicious recipe, it will be a favorite unless of course you do not like bananas.
