This is my version of a very easy to make and tasty gluten free, high protein, high essential fat and low sugar banana bread. You can add more maple sugar or xylitol if you do want it sweeter, but I prefer as is. This is very filling and makes a great snack or even quick breakfast. Just toast and add some salted butter or nut butter for a high energy snack or leave as is for the whole family to enjoy. It also freezes well, so just portion, wrap, freeze and take out as and when needed.
