Today, without fail, I received right down to my final banana and of course it was too ripe for my liking. I contemplated a bit and thought of making a small banana bread loaf but I didn’t feel like I had enough banana to try this.
Then I assumed I’d make some banana pancakes but I additionally wasn’t hungry enough for a large stack like that (I solely eat pancakes when they are piled sky excessive however that’s another story). I needed one thing fast, simple and that might last me a couple of days. So I made a decision to make no-bake cinnamon banana bread power balls.
In one giant bowl, I shortly mashed that ripe banana and folded in my other components. My banana bread dough got here collectively quicker than I anticipated and in just a couple of minutes I had myself probably the most scrumptious banana bites complimented with a touch of cinnamon.
Okay, truly a number of cinnamon however who doesn’t love cinnamon? How about that sweet aroma? I do know I can by no means depart a Trader Joe’s without choosing up a type of outsized cinnamon brooms that makes your home odor like the candle department at Target through the vacation season.
Cinnamon, for my part is likely one of the most flavorful and delicious spices. A sprinkle or two over your food can truly do you way more good than you realize. Cinnamon is understood to scale back heart disease and may decrease blood sugar levels.
I also heard that it may also help to struggle off infections and viruses. I lately discovered that it’s loaded with antioxidants. Yay, another win for the cinnamon stick. Combine the health benefits of cinnamon with all the vitamin c, potassium and fiber from a banana and you’ve got yourself a perfect combination of power and deliciousness.
