If you are someone who doesn’t have a lot of time in the morning and frequently misses breakfast. Then this banana bread recipe is definitely for you. Filling and nutritious, it will see you through until lunch.
These days many people have very busy lifestyles, leaving little time to prepare nutritious meals. One way to assure that you still eat healthy, nutrient dense meals is to prepare in advanced. As a Personal Trainer the majority of my clients say they struggle to eat breakfast. This either being due to time constraints or they don’t feel ready to eat. Given that, I always suggest quick and nutritious breakfast options that can be eaten on the go. This banana bread is a perfect example, it contains slow release complex carbs, fibre, protein and healthy fats. It is ideal to pack in Tupperware to eat when you have time, on the bus/tube/train or at mid morning break.
You can eat this bread hot or cold, with or without a topping. The sweetness from the banana and blueberries means it tastes great alone. However, that doesn’t mean its not even better with some peanut butter and a hot cup of tea. This bread is quite versatile, it’s great at breakfast, as a snack, dessert with some ice cream, or as a pre/post workout meal. What’s even better, it’s so simple to make and can be stored in the fridge for a good few days (that’s if it lasts that long!).
Pre heat your oven to 180C and line a loaf tin with baking paper
Place all ingredients into a food processor, except for the banana to top and blend until smooth
