This gut friendly banana macadamia bread is one of my favourite healthy snacks. Being sugar free and grain free and made with real, unprocessed ingredients, it’s a healthy, guilt free snack or treat that supports good gut health. I add buttery and health promoting macadamias for that extra special touch adding an element of texture and flavour as well as good, healthy fats your body will love.

The banana bread recipe will also work well made into muffins (perfect for freezing for work snacks or for the kids after school).

As I share in my  6 Week Program snacks should ideally contain protein and good fats to keep you fuller for longer, curb cravings and reduce energy crashes. This gluten free banana bread
recipe contains good fats (from the macadamias, macadamia oil and almond meal), plant-based protein (from the eggs and nuts) as well as energising banana helping you to feel fab without bloating or gut irritating ingredients.

See notes below on how to make this recipe sweetener free. Serve as is, warmed, toasted or with a dollop of coconut yoghurt and drizzle of honey.

Dietary Notes:

This recipe is gluten free, dairy free and soy free

Notes:
  • Adjust sweetness to liking by increasing or decreasing amount of natural sweetener (rice malt syrup).
  • The recipe also works without any sweeter and just with the natural sweetness of banana. Before baking; top with crushed macadamia nuts or sliced banana.
