Are you after a healthy BUT tasty Banana Bread for the whole family (including bubby) well here you go! We cut the loaf into slices and freeze individually for snacks on the go or afternoon tea for Mum, Dad and the kids. This recipe has no added sugar and tastes amazing!

  • 2x eggs
  • Optional (for added sweetness): you can add 1 and 1/2 tbs maple syrup.
  • Additional to add into the mixture: if you would like to add some crunch or more goodness, feel free to add pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, oats or crushed walnuts!
