Healthy Banana Bread Recipe for Athletes

There’s nothing more enjoyable than a loaf of freshly baked banana bread following a long ride or run, but be careful before you reach for a piece from your local cafe.

Commercial banana bread is far from nutritious, mass produced and full of refined wheat flour, margarine, sugar and more banana flavouring than banana itself. Do yourself a favour and make a loaf of this bumper banana bread. It’s sure to be a winner amongst your family and friends, and best of all is gluten and wheat free, dairy free and has no refined sugar! Make a double batch on the weekends, slice then freeze in portions for future convenience.
