Date & Pistachio Nut Protein Banana Bread (Gluten-Free)
I think Banana bread is one of THE best sweet bread/cakes out there. It’s great on its own, with a bit of nut butter on top, with some sliced bananas or berries, with actual butter, or even chocolate. It’s great eaten cold, toasted lightly, and it’s glorious eaten straight out of the oven too. If you want to take it up a further notch, you can also dip it in egg and dry it on a pan with some coconut oil for the best French Toast you’ve ever had!
Banana bread is just fabulous and it can be really healthy too. Check, for example, all of these beautiful banana protein breads I’ve made in the past and then, of course, check out the recipe in this post!
