buckwheat banana bread

Banana bread is one of my all time favourite foods, I would eat it all day every day if I could.. and with all the goodness packed into this particular recipe I might just be able to! Apologies to those who wanted me to make this recipe vegan, I wanted a quick and easy post or pre-workout snack, which meant I wanted it to be as protein packed as possible, which sadly meant eggs, sorry! However this recipe is gluten free for those wondering and for all those who are skeptical of healthy baking, I promise this tastes just as good as a banana bread made with butter, sugar and flour… I think even better!
