Chocolate Mousse & Caramel Filled Easter Eggs

Chocolate Mousse & Caramel Filled Easter Eggs

Healthy Banana Bread

Healthy Banana Bread

I could eat Banana Bread for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s sweet, but not too sweet, it’s filling and comforting, and especially good warm from the oven. My recipe contains unrefined sugar and a slightly healthier grain.

Enjoy as a healthy snack, stick a slice in the kids lunch boxes and enjoy with a good cuppa!
