Here is a tasty healthy eating alternative to traditional banana bread that throws in an extra serve of veggies.
Perfect for morning or afternoon tea, the kids will also love this home baked healthy eating treat.
healthy_eatingThis loaf freezes well in individually wrapped slices once cooled, so you can just grab it and pop it in the microwave or toaster when hunger strikes. Or pop it in your bag in the morning to enjoy for afternoon tea.

Optional extras:

  • Add 2 tbsp cocoa or cacao to the batter
  • Sprinkle over 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds before baking
