Healthy Macro Friendly Banana Bread
I LOVE banana bread! This is the perfect option to add in or after a workout or simply as a yummy treat! If you are anything like me, i always buy bananas in my weekly shop. however, i don't always get around to eating them all by the time they get a little too ripe. when they hit that ripe stage, this is the perfect time to use them in a banana bread recipe instead of letting them go to waste.
Just warning you this recipe is moorish! So try to stop at a few slices instead of eating the whole loaf! To increase the protein content per serve i like to mix a spread of protein powder, peanut butter and some water, and mix it into a paste and spread over each slice i have.
I hope you enjoy it as much as i do.
