Hi there,Thank- you for all your helpful information. Especially for this delicious sounding recipe. 😋
I am an older long term type1 diabetic. I have always loved to cook try out new things and work out different ways to make my food more healthy.
I haven’t tried this recipe yet, but intend to do so very soon.
I intend omitting the Packed TBS of brown sugar.
I have done this with other similar Banana recipes and it was way better for me and my hubby and family
I found Sugar not really need with the sweetness of the ripe banana. No, sickly sweet after taste and less calories and carbs.
Many thanks for your great help and support.
Cherie Hobday.
