1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 slightly beaten egg whites
1 c. mashed ripe bananas (3 medium or 2 large)

  6. I am just starting to change my lifestyle and eat clean so maybe this is a dumb question but is baking soda and baking powder "clean"? Also I've seen things call for protein powder in recipes, but that doesn't seem very clean to me either.

    1. Baking soda and Baking powder are fine for a clean diet. Protein powder can definitely be very unclean though! If you want to use some, the protein boost has great health benefits, but look for a raw variety. Sun Warrior and Perfect Fit are varieties I know are all raw but you will have to experiment to find one that you love. Happy hunting! :)
