Banana Walnut Bread

banana_whitechoc_loafHere’s a warm winter treat you can enjoy and not feel guilty about.  Gluten and refined sugar-free (vegan optional) this is a great option for you if you’re still trying to reduce your sugar load from the holidays.  Also a great idea for dessert, late afternoon snack or sharing with co-workers on treat day.

If you think you might have difficulty with gluten (which most of us do!) and are experiencing a lot of digestive distress, inflammation, chronic fatigue, even arthritis, or PMS I highly recommend checking out my article on gluten intolerance and why you might be suffering from it.

In the meantime, enjoy this delicious recipe!
