I feel like banana bread has became such a basic those past few years. And I can understand why: it is easy to make, affordable, taste great and can be really healthy, which is always a plus!
I don’t have a sweet tooth but when I crave sugar, I’d rather bake something then buying biscuits, ice cream or candies. First, I quite like to bake. I think it is nice to be creative with your food and I like the whole idea of sharing something you cook with others. Secondly, I need to know what I eat. It might sounds understandable but I truly pay attention to what I put in my body.
This banana bread recipe is my favourite. It stands on the healthier side but I throw some chocolate chips in it so it is extra satisfying to me !
