Banana Bread for the first time

IMG_20160414_191615

I love bananas 😍 I could eat them every day especially that you can buy them all year round so cheap. They are great in smoothies, as an ice cream and as an addition to cakes of course. And my all time favourite form of banana is banana bread. Love the moist texture, addition of the crunchy nuts and cinamon flavour mmm… But I’ve never attempted to make one. The reason is simple- my bananas never last so long 😑 However a few days ago I bought some extra fruit. Two of them I used for today’s cake and I kept two more in the freezer to make some nice icecream soon.

But back to the cake. I love bananas but my boyfriend… not so much (I will have to bake a nice cake for him soon ;p). So basically I will have the whole cake for myself haha 😆 Just joking. I will probably take a few pices to work and freeze the rest.

Here’s the healthy recipe (I used one from the blog cookieandkate.com).
