There are many great joys in baked goods; cupcakes, cakes, pancakes, muffins, bread, etc. all provide our lives with sweet happiness that’s achieved bite after bite. The flip side is that unfortunately baked goods aren’t super great for you. They usually contain a high amount of calories, fat, sugar, and carbohydrates, and not the good kind. However, Zuvii banana flour is here to the rescue to make your baked goods a bit more nutritional. Read on to find out what it is and how you can use it for your next baking task.

As you can probably guess from it’s name, Zuvii banana flour is indeed made from bananas. To be more precise, unripe, green bananas, the reason being that their sugar content has not reached its peak. The bananas are picked, peeled, sliced, dehydrated, then milled into Zuvii banana flour, which can be used in place of regular flour in just about anything you please.

Even if you don’t like bananas, Zuvii banana flour is still a great alternative to regular flour. Because green bananas don’t have a very strong taste, baking with Zuvii won’t make your end products taste like bananas either. It produces a fluffy texture with no grittyness or lumps. Additionally, the flour is gluten-free, paleo, and organic, so it can be enjoyed by those who must follow a stricter diet.

A huge nutritional benefit of Zuvii is the amount of potassium it provides. Each bag delivers 12 bananas worth of potassium, or 330 milligrams per serving. There’s also 2 grams of fiber, 1 gram of protein, 4 milligrams of calcium, 20 grams of resistant starch and only 1 gram of sugar in each serving. Resistant starch is a prebiotic that’s super good for the growth of beneficial bacteria in your gut, and aids in weight loss.

Another plus is that there’s no additives, preservatives, chemicals or dyes, meaning you don’t have to worry about eating anything unnatural.

Zuvii banana flour can easily be substituted for regular flour in all your baked goods. It’s recommended to use 30% of the amount of suggested flour, however, because of Zuvii’s high starch content. Zuvii also makes mixes for pancakes, brownies, and chocolate and vanilla cake, making it easy to bake your favorite, beloved sweets. Baked goods made with banana flour? Seems like a stellar revolution to me. 

So the next time you’re cooking something that uses flour, or are making pancakes, brownies, or cake, try subbing in Zuvii banana flour to make it a little healthier and greatly increase the nutritional content. You’ll go bananas over how good it is. 

I received Zuvii banana flour free of charge, however all opinions are my own.
