    Banana Flour
    New products come into Nana’s all the time and one that has recently sparked my interest is Banana Flour.  Let me just say from the outset that anything banana is generally a winner for me so why wouldn’t this be!!  Produced in North Queensland from 100% owned and grown bananas, it is gluten free, resistant starch, contains no preservatives or additives, great for digestion and low GI.  The products website has some super ideas on how to use it, but the simplest way is as a general flour replacer.  It is always nice to try a new product, especially one a little different and one that not many people have heard of. 
    Tegan decided to give the flour a crack and whipped up one of the recipes on the flyer (adapted to be plant based) and I have to say I really enjoyed the subtle difference in flavour the flour brought out.  So guys, get adventurous, try something new and even better, support some of our Northern farmers who have been belted over the last few years by some hectic weather.  Banana Flour…yummo!
