Coffee & Maple Walnut Banana Loaf

As you have probably already guess by now we absolutely LOVE banana loaf. We make it ALL the time whenever we have some left over bananas that need to be used up. Our recipe is so simple and takes no time at all! In fact we made the one below before work one morning that’s how quick and easy it is.

We would suggest enjoying a slice when it is warm and freshly baked because it just tastes unreal!

When littles emailed us to ask if we we would like to take part in national bake week using their coffee we jumped at the chance! Our flavour of choice was the maple walnut coffee and we instantly new it would taste amazing in our refined sugar free banana loaf (original recipe available here).

Just PB protein shake

We love a protein shake after working out, during the weeks we usually mix our protein with water and chug it whilst running out of the gym and making our way to work. When we actually get the chance to make a delicious protein shake we jump at the chance because let’s be honest it tastes WAY better.

Annie loves nut butter so always opts for a shake that has NB in it! So we thought it was about time we created our own PB protein shake (we will be sharing more recipes soon). This protein shake is SO simple to make and is always Annie’s go to shake at the weekend.

PB

Ingredients
1 banana
1 scoop white chocolate protein
1tsp peanut butter
Ice cubes we usually use about 4
50ml Almond milk

Method
Wack everything into a blender we use a Nutri Bullett and blend for a minute
Pour into a glass with a straw
Optional you can pop a strawberries on the side and enjoy!
See we said it was the quickest recipe ever!

Banana & Peanut mini loafs

Banana bread and peanut butter are two of our favourite things in life (well peanut butter is one of Annie’s, Rachel cant stand it but she does love banana bread). We have already created a banana bread recipe which is so delicious and simple to make.

We recently received some ‘Peanut Hottie’ in the post and new straight away we had to create a recipe using the product. we love banana and peanut butter porridge so we thought it would be perfect to add the peanut hottie to our banana bread recipe and instead of making a big loaf we would make mini loafs!

You can purchase Peanut Hottie in all the leading supermarkets here in the UK including Waitrose, Tesco and Sainsburys. We cant wait to try the peanut hottie with chocolate drink as well!

Refined sugar free banana bread

We really wanted to bake some banana bread one Sunday afternoon when we were browsing the fruit and vegetable isles in the supermarket. Most supermarkets bag up banana that are about to go out of date and sell them for about 20p bargain!

Banana bread is great because you can eat it at any time of the day! Well you can with this banana bread because it is sugar free and still tastes so delicious! The bananas are sweet enough and become even sweeter once cooked so you wont even notice the lack of sugar.
