Recipe Notes

Zero Waste Recipe Notes: 

Based on what I have in my fridge, I have swapped 2 tbsp of buttermilk for one of the mashed bananas in the past (if I'm trying to use up buttermilk or don't have enough bananas). 

You could also add other fruit instead of or in addition to the banana chunks. Blueberries, for example, are a great option.
