Banana + Raspberry + Almond Bread

Banana Raspberry Almond Bread

Ripe bananas…

What to do when they are on the way out? This Banana + Raspberry + Almond Bread is a great choice. It is fruity, moist and I think the real bonus of it is that it is low sugar so not really in the naughty department. On the other hand, if you have a sweet tooth it is lovely drizzled with maple syrup. You can also spread it with nut butter. I like almond butter the best.

More Sustaining

The truth of this fruit bread is that it is low in simple carbohydrates because I use brown rice or rice malt syrup and wholemeal flour. It will sustain you for longer than regular banana bread. And other pluses? Potassium from the bananas, antioxidants from the raspberries and protein from the eggs and almond meal. Sound good? Yes it sure is!

I was concerned at first that my Banana + Raspberry + Almond Bread wouldn’t please those in my family who have a sweet tooth. But you know it did please them because it is that yummy. And the drizzle of maple syrup is always an option. Try this treat toasted for breakfast or for afternoon tea. It is extremely sustaining.

We have so many eggs!

Oh, and Milly and Molly are back laying again after being off-lay for the winter and their eggs are perfect for this free range, whole food treat. Look out for other recipes where I use their egg supply along with a plethora of eggs donated by their friends up the road! I love home grown eggs – they are so rich in flavour and colour. Beautiful!

Try Banana + Raspberry + Almond Bread next time your bananas are turning brown and you are in need of a healthy treat.
