  2. Hand-mash the bananas in a bowl, add lemon juice, and stir. Add apple sauce and maple syrup and use a spatula to combine. Set aside.
  3. Whisk together the dry ingredients in a separate bowl, and then add them to the wet ingredients. Stir well to combine.

  5. Allow to cool on a wire rack and then enjoy! Mmmm! :)

Recipe Notes

This recipe uses maple syrup for two reasons; one is that it is expensive, so you won't be tempted to overuse it. But it's also low inflamation, as it has a low amount of fructose. :)
