BANANA WALNUT BREAD

A delicious and healthy banana walnut bread recipe that is grain-free, gluten-free, sugar-free and dairy-free.

Simple, easy-to-make and ideal for quick breakfasts, yummy snacks and healthy treats.

I love having a slice of this banana walnut bread with crunchy peanut butter (or almond butter). I’ll have it fresh out of the oven, but it’s also great for a mid morning healthy treat – or for breakfast!
