Eggs, Olive Oil, Yoghurt, Bananas, Honey, Flour, Cinnamon, Salt, Baking Soda, Bitter Chocolate/Walnuts (Optional)
As we are all spending our days at home, I see that all of my friends and the people I follow on social media (Youtubers, Bloggers, Actors, Actresses and etc.) are looking for things to keep themselves busy.
It’s certain that we are going through a very different process from our normal day-to-do, but I believe the most important thing is protecting our physical and mental health. If you are asking yourself; "I was here to find out the banana bread recipe, what is she talking about?!" I can totally understand, so let me get to it. I’m here to give you a recipe, which you will enjoy to prepare and keep yourself busy at home.
I want to highlight that this one will be a kind-a-healthy recipe. No refined sugar, no sour cream and no all-purpose flour! We are at home and not socializing these days but we still care about ourselves, right?
