    Lee_tah's Note:

    From Cooking Light website. Something different to make with over-ripe bananas (this is the key to a strong banana flavour--the more spotted the banana the tastier.) The biscotti are very small "baby-finger" sized--probably how they earned a low calorie rating!

      Mine didn't harden as much as I would like, but, they are delicious. 1/2 way between hard and chewy...yummm. I used 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 all purpose flour...worked great.

      These were AWESOME!! It is so nice to have something else to use up overripe bananas on besides bread like things. I did use sliced almonds instead of pecans (what I had on hand) and used part whole wheat flour as well. Made a triple batch since I had 3 bananas I needed to use. So glad I did! DELICIOUS!!! Thanks for posting this easy and delicious recipe!

      Even though bananas are my favorite thing to bake with, I was skeptical about them in biscotti. And for no reason! These were so amazing, and tasted almost like banana pancakes when dipped in coffee. I didn't have any pecans, so I toasted some almonds and chopped them up. Excellent, will make again!
