Banana Picnic Loaf
Our Banana Picnic Loaf is the perfect thing for when you want to pack up and picnic. It’s simple to make and is a total crowd pleaser. Who doesn’t love a banana loaf? Full of healthy fats and plenty of fibre from the banana and carrot it’s perfect for any time of the day. If you’ve got a big walk planned you might also love to take some of our energy bites along too for that energy slump at the top for a steep hill. We love to have one of these in the freezer for snack attack emergencies!
