Back To Basics.. Banana & Raspberry Bread

image

Undeniably the best guilt free afternoon treat!

Banana Bread is a household staple in most homes. Its one thing people find easiest to make and enjoy with an afternoon cuppa. Usually containing brown sugar and white wheat flour, my version is more wholesome using natural unprocessed sweeteners and unprocessed buckwheat flour for easier digestion. This is a basic recipe you can leave out the raspberries for plain banana bread or add other things to it also, such as dark choc chips, blueberries, walnuts, dates, whatever you like really.

Good recipe to keep handy!
