banana bread photoThis delicious banana bread is perfect for afternoon tea and healthy enough to enjoy for breakfast. I like it with grass fed butter and cinnamon, or a dollop of coconut yoghurt and some activated nuts. I use almond meal as a flour substitute as I like the taste and texture. This is such an easy recipe that takes about ten minutes to prepare.

Bananas are a good source of fibre and vitamin C which helps promote good digestion. They are rich in potassium which helps regulate fluid levels in the body. Butter contains many important nutrients such as vitamin A which is needed for a healthy thyroid and adrenal glands. It also contains selenium, a vital antioxidant. Eggs are rich in many nutrients especially fat soluble vitamins A and D.

This banana bread is a far cry from the traditional refined sugar version. Enjoyment without the guilt!
