    A Healthy Snack Its Monday and that means the #FoodieMonday #Bloghop group will have a theme decided on last week and the recipes are live on Mondays. For our #89th theme,our group decided on #raw bananas which was suggested by Kriti, food blogger at Krispy Kadhai. I’m not new to raw bananas, plantains or matoke as its called in East Africa.
