No-Bake Green Banana RS Cookies

Resistant starch (RS) is a type of carbohydrate that our digestive enzymes cannot break down in the stomach or small intestine. They, therefore, reach the colon intact, “resisting” digestion.

This explains why we do not see spikes in either blood glucose or insulin after eating food rich in RS and why we do not obtain significant calories from RS.

The key benefit is simple: RS is food for probiotics (whether you take them in the form of a pill or in food – I’m a proponent of doing both). In other words, it’s a prebiotic we often hear about.

The green banana flour in these no-bake cookies makes them prebiotic. Try not to eat more than two of these cookies a day as the flour can be hard on stomachs that aren’t used to it.

  1. I am curious what ‘dedicated coconut ” is in the recipe?Is this a typo or what does it mean?
    Thank you for clarification.!!!

    • It is more rare in the US as well, but we do find these things at natural health food stores, as well as on Amazon. I hope that helps Pat! Jen HB Support

  2. So these are still considered ok for anti-candida diet even with the dates?
