Banana & Walnut Bread



This banana bread differs from most "healthy" banana bread recipe as it's not loaded with cup fulls of coconut flour and coconut oil, adding in unnecessary calories.. This one also make for the "pre-bed snack" dream! Excuse the pun, but the combination of banana, oats and yoghurt leaves the body flooded with tryptophan, is carried across the blood-brain barrier, is converted to 5HTP and eventually to melatonin leading to a beautiful deep night's sleep! What more could you want!
