Banana, Oat & Chia Loaf

Updated: Dec 1, 2020

I have an easy and delicious recipe that I can't wait to share with you... It's high protein and full of fibre but still tastes amazing!! Having received the whole family tick of approval, this loaf is such an excellent all rounder - enjoy it at any time of day for the feeling of indulgence with zero guilt. I love it fresh and it keeps well for about 4 days. To mix it up toast your slice in a sandwhich press and top with a smear of butter. The perfect companion for a hot cup of tea!
