This is a simple and delicious, healthy banana bread that is high in protein and good fats.
Many banana breads use cheap, nasty oils, added sugar and preservatives which is a shame because it is so simple to create a wholesome version of this favourite!!
This recipe is great for those wanting to increase levels of omega 3 fats, protein or who may love their MCFA’s (medium chain fatty acids – excellent for great brain function) or those who just want a simple healthy banana bread alternative.
It is also naturally sweetened using only ripe bananas, so it is comparatively low in sugars and carbohydrates.
Prana Protein is a great addition as it is packed with amino acids, plant based protein and digestive enzymes to help your body absorb all that goodness.
