Banana bread

Untitled design (33)

Is there anything better than warm toasted banana bread and coffee for morning tea?

If this is your happy place too, you’ll adore this healthy version of banana bread with a crunchy pumpkin seed topping.

With less than half the fat, 40% less sugar, and three times the fibre, it’s all the yumminess… without the sugar crash afterwards.
