You know it’s winter when instead of using up old fruit in a smoothie, you turn it into something that tastes like cake! I’m not gonna lie, these cold days have made me feel really hungry and crave allllll the sweet carbs, so at least this banana bread is a little healthier than a jam doughnut!
I really like having some healthier higher carb snacks in the house for my boys, especially after school when they come home and just want to eat the whole house. A couple of slices of banana bread and a smoothie always hits the spot and it makes me feel good to know that they have something proper in their tummies.
This Clean Eating Wholegrain Blueberry Banana Bread is sweet and delicious! The juicy blueberries make it extra special and is a great way to sneak some fruit into your kiddos! My youngest doesn’t like blueberries but he likes them in banana bread!
