Banana protein bread with toasted coconut lemon and macadamia
Simplifying baking whilst still packing epic nutrition and deliciousness into our lives with this yummy Banana Protein Bread with Coconut Lemon and Macadamias mmmmmmmmmm…. I’ve used a beautiful banana bread packet mix by Mt Elephant for this beauty and pimped it up with lemon, flaked coconut and macadamias.
It’s rare that I find packet mixes I want to use and actually like as they’re mostly full of ingredients I don’t want, but these are without refined sugar and gluten and contain whole food ingredients including hemp protein, almond meal, buckwheat, cinnamon, coconut and flax @mt_elephant to help keep you and the fam fuller for longer.
