Bananas are extremely healthy and delicious! They contain several essential nutrients and provide benefits for digestion, heart health and weight loss.

 

Bananas Contain Many Important Nutrients

Potassium: 9% of the RDI

Vitamin B6: 33% of the RDI

Vitamin C: 11% of the RDI

Magnesium: 8% of the RDI

Copper: 10% of the RDI

Manganese: 14% of the RDI

Net carbs: 24 grams

Fiber: 3.1 grams

Protein: 1.3 grams

Fat: 0.4 grams

Bananas contain nutrients that moderate blood sugar levels

Bananas are rich in pectin and resistant starch which may moderate blood sugar levels after meals and reduce appetite by slowing the emptying of your stomach.

 

Bananas may aid weight loss

Eating more fiber from vegetables and fruits like bananas has repeatedly been linked to lower body weight and weight loss.

 

Bananas may support heart health

Bananas are a great dietary source of potassium. One medium-sized banana (118 grams) contains 9% of the RDI. A potassium-rich diet can help lower blood pressure, and people who eat plenty of potassium have up to a 27% lower risk of heart disease.

 

Bananas may help you feel more full

Resistant starch is a type of indigestible carb — found in unripe bananas and other foods — which functions like soluble fiber in your body.

As a rule of thumb, you can estimate that the greener the banana, the higher its resistant starch content (31).

On the other hand, yellow, ripe bananas contain lower amounts of resistant starch and total fiber — but proportionally higher amounts of soluble fiber. Both pectin and resistant starch offer appetite-reducing effects and increase the feeling of fullness after meals.

And who doesn’t love pancakes?

Here is a quick 4-ingredient easy recipe for you to try.

 Ingredients

• 1 small ripe banana

• 2 medium eggs

• 20g oats

• cinnamon

 Toppings:

• low-fat vanilla yogurt

• berries (raspberries, blueberries, strawberries)

 Method:

Step 1 Mash banana in a medium bowl until smooth. Whisk in eggs, then add oats and cinnamon. Mix until smooth and set aside for 5 minutes.

Step 2 Lightly spray a medium non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over medium heat. Spoon 2 tablespoons batter into pan and spread out with the back of a spoon. Repeat with remaining batter to make more pancakes.

Step 3 Cook for 1–2 minutes or until golden. Turn and cook for 1–2 minutes or until pancakes are golden and cooked through.

Step 4 Add toppings and serve.
