Sweet treats

Courgette & Coconut Banana Bread

Due to this nationwide lockdown it’s safe to say that baking and cooking will be a big feature in peoples homes, which is actually a good thing.

Im always saying that the love of cooking and the knowledge of cooking seems to be lacking these days with access to fast foods, convenience foods so going back to basics is good for everyone.

By using simple ingredients to create nutritious meals isn’t hard to do and doesn’t have to be complicated and adding in some sweet treat recipes to the mix is never a bad thing.

And even banana bread can be made healthy and taste just as amazing.
