Today we make Banana Bread

Hello summer sunshine!

I’m back with the recipes again and actually one of my favourite bakes recently! I had too many ripe banana’s today and even though I can eat quite a few in a day I decided I would make some banana bread before they go off. However, I haven’t made banana bread since I went sugar free and tried to look for recipes but couldn’t find anything so I decided to experiment!

The bread should keep in an air tight container for 2 to 3 days. If you want it for longer then store in the fridge for 5 days.

CAUTION: This banana bread will make your house smell incredible and you will want to make it every week!

Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Love A x
