This Sneaky Banana Bread Recipe is my favourite.  Basically an easy banana bread just with sneaky vegetables added. Super moist great to eat on its own or toasted and buttered.

  • Nice, I would remove the sugar as it has already bananas as sweetener and work with some yacon and raw vanilla powder.

  • this sounds great but I don’t believe in hiding vegetables in foods. Once the child grows up they will think all cakes have veges
