Nutritional Benefits of Bananas

Bananas are an excellent source of B6, are also a good source of vitamin C, an are a good source of Manganese and Potassium.

Banana is loaded with fiber, both soluble and insoluble. The soluble fiber has the tendency to slow down digestion and keep you feeling full for a longer time.

Benefits of Coconut Flour

Coconut flour offers an alternative to wheat or other gluten-containing flours.

It contains no gluten, making it an option for people with certain conditions, such as celiac disease, wheat allergy, or non-celiac gluten sensitivity.

Gluten is a group of proteins found in grains, including wheat, barley, and rye, and is difficult to break down during digestion. In some cases, gluten may trigger an immune response.

The high fiber content of coconut flour may also benefit your digestion.

Most of its fiber is insoluble, which adds bulk to stools and helps move food smoothly through your gut, reducing the likelihood of constipation (1).

Additionally, coconut flour boasts small amounts of soluble and other fermentable fibers, which feed the beneficial bacteria in your gut.
