Happy Thursday, friends. I decided last week that I’m going to start paying more attention to which recipes my family requests the most each week and then share them with you. If they love them and ask me to make them constantly, there is a good chance you will too.
Last week, I made this recipe three times and I literally could not keep it in stock for more than a few days. It seriously “moreish” meaning it causes one to want to have more and more!!
My Banana Oat Almond Chocolate Bread can be eaten for breakfast, (which Ellis does along with my stewed fruit) as an afternoon snack, (like I do) or as an evening snack with a giant cup of British tea like Jonathan’s does every single night.
It’s gluten free, high in fiber, and very quick and easy to make. I promise, this recipe is a keeper. It’s the perfect consistency, it’s flavorful and not at all dry and it feels indulgent without being gluttonous!
Surprise your family after work or school this week with my delicious Banana Oat Almond Bread. I’ll bet it becomes one of the most requested recipes from your kitchen in no time.
