I was never the type of person who had a “sweet tooth”. Growing up, if I was offered sliced apples or candy, I took the apples. Somewhere along the way, especially with dieting, I have developed one. I’m not exactly sure why, but I crave sugar and sweets all the time now.
This can be difficult because I have put in so much work building my body, and trying to live this healthy lifestyle. So, what was I to do in order to feed my cravings and at the same time, not hinder my progress. Well, I had to get creative.
My mom taught me how to cook and bake at a young age and it is a passion that I have continued to grow throughout my life. Ok, now to get to the point. My mom had a recipe for banana bread that I absolutely love. The only issue with it, as with most baking, is that it has far too many carbohydrates. I really wanted banana bread, so I decided to find a way to make it more “macro” friendly. It came out so well, that I have to share it, so here it is.
