The combination of the low-fat yeast dough and fruit makes the croissants a sweet snack that you can treat yourself to without regret. Currants provide freshness and bring organic active ingredients to the filling. Anthocyanins keep us young and fit, and flavonoids protect our cells by intercepting free radicals.

Pay attention to the list of ingredients when buying dried bananas. Banana pieces or chips that have been first fried and then soaked in a sugar solution contain a lot of added sugar and fat, so it's worth taking a look at the list of ingredients. If there's no coconut fat or sugar on it, it is better. Alternatively, you can also add a fresh banana to the filling
