Although there are millions of banana bread recipes floating around the internet and throughout recipe books, we couldn’t agree more with Georgia McDermott that the limit simply does not exist! Beautiful toasted and served with lashings of butter, or simply as is. It also happens to be GF, nut free and FODMAP friendly. A winner. View the recipe here.
