Fall Baking With Your Children

November 1, 2016

This time of the year, I love baking, especially with spices like cinnamon and nutmeg that fill the house with a delicious smell. I love this easy banana bread recipe that you can enjoy baking with your children, and it has absolutely no sugar of any kind added. It makes a great breakfast with some almond butter, a lunch box sandwich with some crushed raspberries and sunflower seed butter, or even after school snack. It is filled with healthy carbohydrates, fiber, fat and protein without any of the refined sugar.
