So once you have gone down the rabbit hole with a sourdough starter you will learn that once you begin feeding it you need to discard some each time. So I started looking into Sourdough starter discard recipes. Many of them use white flour, refined sugar and eggs, which are all things I try to stay away from. So when my sister-in-law sent me this recipe from Alison Wu I knew I had to try it.I altered her recipe a little if you are interested in my version. But I definitely suggest checking out her recipe as well. It sounds amazing! I was just out of ripe bananas at the time.
