Healthy banana bread

I’ve never met anyone that doesn’t love banana bread, fresh out of the oven. Banana bread is one of those foods that evokes great nostalgia and is an ultimate cure for any homesickness.

This smeared with a thick layer of butter, or almond butter, is so satisfying. And to add to the beauty of it, this recipe is healthy enough to justify eating it for breakfast.
