If you’re anything like myself this is the time of year where you really start enjoying some of the delicious traditional holiday foods.
With that being said you also try not to eat them everyday and try to stay healthier at least 80% of the time, whilst still enjoying the foods you love.
I personally love fresh baked cakes and breads. They truly are my passion; especially as far as eating them goes.The aromas, the softness, the texture, the crust, the edges; I could go on & on but I need to focus on the blog.
So, when I get in one of my baking, eating, wanting of something kinda like a cake, yet not to sweet I always opt for this Banana Bread. It’s delicious!
I don’t care for frosting’s, I actually really dislike them and whenever I see something baked cake wise I always want to get my hands on it before the frosting goes on top.
I grew up in Italy, frosting are really not common and I like it that way. A cake is perfect without all the added calories that frosting brings to it. I like to taste the actual cake not the sugary added part, but then again that’s me and I also am not a huge fan of sweets.
I know the holidays are around the corner and there is gonna be a lot of delicious food and desserts and we are all gonna just enjoy it and indulge in all the things we love some healthy and some not so much. So, I think that this is a perfect Christmas Healthy breakfast, snack or whenever you want addition to add to the roster of things to serve.
It’s gonna give you all the satisfaction a banana bread gives you, except that it’s much lighter and healthier than the traditional version. No one will notice the difference but your body will thank you! Enjoy!
