Bananas are such a fabulous fruit. They are loaded with potassium, can boost your mood, help with muscle cramps during and after a workout, and give you the energy boost you need! I alway buy bananas at the grocery store,  but they tend to go rotten pretty quickly. And I hate to throw away my old bananas…but what do you do with your almost bad bananas? I make banana bread, freeze them for smoothies…and now even make a breakfast cookie! See the recipe below for another great and healthy option for your almost old bananas! Yummy!!
