Maple Syrup Banana Bread - A Delicious Recipe For Your Family

Making banana bread is a great way to use up ripe bananas. This recipe from Dawn Quest is a healthy, tasty twist on an old favorite.

One of the best things you can do with a bunch of overripe bananas is make good old-fashioned banana bread. In fact, the riper and blacker the banana the better.

We've taken out the processed white sugar and added in maple syrup instead for a slower release of energy rather than a sugar high/sugar crash. The result is a beautifully moist, not-too-sweet bready-cake that works well with crème fraîche or yoghurt or on its own.
