Banana muffins are often a “go-to” snack since they are portable and tasty. The addition of nuts, cinnamon, and coconut add to their anti-inflammatory benefits.

Bananas have a lot of nutrients, but the over-ripe ones also have a high sugar content, so don’t over-do it! It can be easy to have too much fruit in a day because the sugar makes it taste so good!! A better bet is to use green-tipped bananas for more resistant starch.

Some of the great health benefits include:

  • Helps to lower blood pressure – Bananas are known for their potassium content. As an important electrolyte, the potassium in bananas can help to regulate water balance and blood pressure in the body.
  • Soothing to the digestive tract – The fiber in bananas called pectin can help to normalize bowel function.
