Banana & Macadamia Bread

Gluten Free Banana & Macadamia Bread

Banana bread has always been a favourite of mine. 

Way back in the day, I used to get banana bread for breakfast! It was always a yummy breakfast, but not necessarily a healthy one. 

So, I have made a Becomingness that is super yummy and really healthy too! I have also included macadamias in my version. I am a big fan of Macadamias and they add a lovely something something to the bread. 

My banana & macadamia bread is gluten free, dairy free and sugar free. The only sweetness you will find is from the bananas. I have also included the thermomix version for all the Thermi lovers out there.

You could substitute the macadamias with cashews or blanced almonds if you like, but you really have to try this banana bread with the macadamias. I highly recommend it!!

This banana bread recipe would also work well as muffins, which is next on my list to make. I also have a nut free version if you have to avoid the nuts. I am a big fan of making fruit or vegetable breads. I have made apple bread and zucchini & walnut loaf which are both really tasty too. 

Enjoy
