Of my favourite, more healthy-ish snacks is banana bread.
Now, for me, bananas are sweet enough and I do not want to add unnecessary fats to it either. So, when I found this recipe, it quickly became a favourite. It is a beautiful, fluffy, yet moist banana bread.
This simple recipe which substitutes fat with apple sauce and does not need any additional sugar or sweeteners has never failed me. And although it is simple, it is also versatile: add fruit, nuts or chocolate chips to it. So, get creative!
Tip: Banana bread freezes wonderfully. Freeze the bread as a whole or as slices. Take it out and put it in the fridge 24 hours before you want to eat it. Perfect banana bread!
