I love this variation of banana bread, it never fails my taste buds!

My family ask for it quite often. I don’t feel so guilty giving it to them when it is packed with nutrients, either. My kids eat it as a snack, breakfast and even as dessert! Some gluten-free breads are dry and bland but, this one aims to please the taste buds and has plenty of moisture to keep from becoming too dry to taste. So without further ado, let’s get this party started…..

Healthy Banana Bread That Actually Tastes Good!Banana Chia Bread Recipe

Nut-Allergy Free, Gluten-Free
