Buff Banana Bread Recipe

A favourite which can be made into banana bread, banana muffins for an on the go snack or substituted as part of your carbohydrate meal.

Breakfast does not always have to be oats (I do love a big bowl of oats though) but this recipe has me on days when I am most in a rush and heading out the door.

This is also a perfect recipe if you are travelling to watch friends and want to keep a yummy carb meal on hand instead of carrying rice cakes.

Perfect to get buff or to get lean, just alter your ingredients and measurements to suit your macros.
