Okay Vickie, here’s the requested recipe – just for you – and anyone else who is interested, of course! These are moist & delicious and a great thing to make when you find yourself with three over-ripe bananas. Plus, they are gluten-free since they’re made with all Buckwheat flour – but you’d never guess!
