'Waste-Not-Want-Not' Using Low-Carb Lo-Dough
When you see bananas going brown, don't throw them away - put them into your freezer and then use them for banana bread. As a country, it is now well understood that our food waste issue is a huge and mounting problem - use Lo-Dough to help you avoid throwing away that one black looking banana at the end of the bunch!
Using Lo-Dough as a baking ingredient is incredibly easy to use - just whizz up the Lo-Dough in a food processor / nutri-bullet and turn it into a fine, fluffy powder. Add 100g of fruit, a teaspoon of sweetener, a small egg and you have the basic recipe right there. A tablespoon of peanut butter is a great addition, or the same amount of yoghurt or creme fraiche would work just as well. Experiment with your favourite fruits and flavourings.
- 1 piece of
Lo-Dough, blitzed to fine crumbs
- 1 frozen banana, taken out to defrost for a couple of hours (or overnight in the fridge) and then peeled
- 2 tablespoons of PBfit, made up with water as per instructions (or any peanut butter of your choice)
- 1 small egg
- 1 teaspoon of cocoa
- 1-2 teaspoons of sweetener
What you'll need
This diet-friendly recipe is possible with:
- In a bowl, mash up the banana. Then add all the other ingredients and mix well.
- Divide the mix into 3 or 4 silicone moulds, mugs, ramekins, etc. The different containers will change the final shape, but not the flavour! Microwave for 1.5 minutes. Check the mix is cooked through - it may need 30 more seconds or so depending on your microwave and the size of your containers.
- Once cooked, leave to stand for a further minute. These can be eaten hot, but are best served after cooling down.
