Ru’s Banana Bread Recipe(gf)

Our Founder Ruvanie stumbled across this 1 kg bag of  almond meal in the centre isle at Aldi supermarket recently, and like so many others thought ” I don’t know what I’m going to use this for, but it’s a great buy – I’ll find a use for it!” Voila a banana bread recipe with benefits was born. This is the food relationship you wont want to miss out on. Moist and glowy thanks to our best selling Vytal 360 Collagen Peptides bringing  you hair, skin, nails and gut benefits along with a mild and nutty, banana flavour.

Traditionally speaking my “great buys” sit in the cupboard for about 18 months before I eventually decide it’s gone off and throw it out.

That’s when I tried this gluten free banana bread recipe. And, OMG it was delicious!

This banana bread is moist and freezes perfectly for those rainy days. Best of all it literally takes no time to mix together, and then bake. And, if you want to make it for a special occasion you can even ice it with cream cheese icing, for a decadent finish.

This Banana Bread Recipe is full of wellness-boosting goodness from the Collagen Peptides, to the fibre and the potassium; these delicious snacks are filling and fabulously tasty.

If you’ve been on the hunt for a banana-inspired glowy snack, look no further, this recipe is your new best friend.

Things to note: We’ve used almond meal or almond flour – both can be used interchangeably. Almond flour weighs less than wheat flour, so always use measuring cups to get exact proportions. For our glow-getters I’ve added 3-4 scoops of our Vytal 360 Collagen Peptides into the dry ingredients to zoosh up the nutritional content of the bread.

This recipe is on high rotation in my household. We hope it becomes a favourite for your family too.

Happy baking glow-getters!

Note 1: Eggs are important to give moisture to the bread, so ingredients bind together and cook through.

Note 2: Oil the loaf tin thoroughly and line with grease proof paper, to avoid the loaf sticking.
