Banana Breaky Bites

Who ever said breakfast was boring? These banana bread squares are gluten-free, sugar-free and taste like heaven.

I recently have started using yogurt in my cake recipes, it has been a great addition making them moist and fluffy. Yogurt is a huge part of my diet as it is full of beneficial bacteria that helps my digestive tract.

IMG_4957I only ever buy whole milk yogurt because:

  • Our bodies cannot digest and break down the protein or absorb nutrients from yogurt without the fat.
  • Essential vitamins A and D are also fat-soluble. So you can’t absorb them from milk when all the fat has been removed.
  • Our body is designed to eat whole foods, foods that haven’t been processed. Nutrients in whole foods have natural synergy with one another, so they are most beneficial when taken together. When you remove part of the milk/yogurt the nutritional profile is out of whack, so you discard all the wonderful nutritional benefits.

Tip: You can make these the night before if you don’t have time in the morning and have them as an afternoon snack also.
