This winter has been B.R.U.T.A.L. This is my seventh year in Canada, and I think it might be the worst winter I’ve experienced so far. We’ve had lots of snow (and the sidewalks on my street don’t get plowed regularly 🙃) and it’s been pretty cold. And let me tell you, I’m the kind of person who’s always cold, so with the weather we’ve been having for the past few weeks, I’ve literally been drinking an astronomical amount of tea to stay warm! Another thing I’ve been craving this winter are warm snacks. And what’s better than a warm piece of banana bread on a cold winter day?!
This healthy banana bread is refined sugar free, only sweetened by bananas (make sure to use ripe bananas) and some maple syrup. It is fluffy and moist, and pairs so well with the peanut butter swirl, which gives a little nutty flavour to the bread without being too peanut butter-y! (If you don’t like peanut butter or if you are allergic, just leave it out.)
This bread truly is a great snack for that mid-afternoon craving, or would even be great served warm for breakfast with maybe some extra peanut butter on top 😉Either way, I hope this banana bread will bring a bit of warmth in your home during this cold winter!

Have a good week guys!
