One of the questions I am asked most, is how to use ripe bananas. We all have some lying around from time to time. So I have put together a bunch of recipes for you to use them in.
We are about to go on vacation and I needed to use up some bananas. So I made these 4 Ingredient Banana Coconut Cookies. These were a cinch to make! Less than 20 minutes. I added chocolate chips to mine, but that is totally optional. I can see raisins also working well in this recipe. These cookies are healthy enough for breakfast!
This recipe is super easy. Vegan, gluten free and grain free. I used quinoa flakes, so there is a nice protein boost in here as well. If you don’t want to use quinoa flakes, you can always use quick oats in place of them. These cookies freeze great, so make a big batch and freeze some for busy mornings.
Stir fries are a great way to use up odds and ends in the fridge. This Quinoa Vegetable Stir Fry comes together very quickly. I always keep some cooked grains or quinoa in the fridge to add to meals like this. This quinoa stir fry recipe is very versatile. Just use it as a base to add whatever veggies you like. I happened to have a couple orange peppers sitting around, so that was my starting point. I also love broccoli in my stir fries, so I made sure to add it.
These quinoa stir fry recipe is vegan, and it can easily be gluten free if you use Bragg’s aminos or coconut aminos instead of the soy sauce.
