Don't have ripe bananas? No problem.
The bananas don't need to be super ripe in order for this to be delicious. We are caramelizing them with the maple syrup and the coconut oil. That releases all the natural sugars present in the banana so they are extra sweet (which is the main reason why we don't need to add any refined sugar to this recipe). 
Gluten Free? 
If you're gluten free you can swap the Whole Wheat Flour for an AP Gluten Free Flour Blend.
