Healthy, easy, and oh so yummy! It has a nice crust and a soft moist center. I like it that it wasn’t overly sweet! Most recipes uses 1 cup of sugar, since bananas are already sweet, I cut down on the sugar a whole lot. You can substitute sugar for honey if you want to make this even healthier. There is no butter used in this recipe, only heart healthy extra virgin olive oil. The kids, husband, and helper loved it and the whole loaf was gone in 2 days. Will make this again very soon, so I can have some healthy breakfast on the go when I start working next week. I’m a little sad that my ‘Stay at home mum’ days are over, and I’ll be left with little time to have my little adventures in the kitchen. But that will not deter me from continuing my blogging and food journey. Perhaps lesser frequency in posting, or perhaps more ideas for meals under an hour! As I start working hard to build my career, I foresee my slow-cooker working hard with me as well. 🙂 A little too much deviation! Here is the recipe.
