Ingredient Notes and Health Benefits:
Oat Flour: A great gluten free option, oat flour is a great source of fiber, and is also higher in protein and healthy fats in comparison to all purpose flour. I prefer to make my own, it’s very easy. Instructions for that are below!
Bananas: are high in fiber, potassium and antioxidants. In this recipe, the more ripe the bananas, the better.
Butter: I buy Kerrygold grass fed salted butter. You can find it here.
Egg: A great source of protein, remember to beat the egg before adding it to the mixing bowl.
Ground Flaxseed: High in fiber, lignans and omega-3 fats, flaxseed has powerful antioxidant properties which may help prevent cancer.

How to Make Oat Flour:
I love to make my oat flour at home. It’s so easy and you can make it right before you bake, so it’s super fresh! Simply pour old fashioned oats into a blender, and blend until its one smooth consistent texture. If you would rather buy oat flour, there’s some really great store bought versions too. I like this one from Bob’s Red Mill.
