Banana Bread


Banana bread with granola and nuts on the top to add a classy texture. Nothing could be better than a healthy banana bread to satisfy your cravings. I repeat Nothing!!!

The chilly winters call for a hot cup of tea and lovely banana bread loaded with various nuts. A perfect texture you may not have enjoyed earlier.

Remembering when I was a little doll playing around listening to the talks (in the background) between two wonderful ladies sharing delicious food recipes.

My grandma used to engage me in little baking tasks like gathering and mixing ingredients. I wasn't aware at that time that she was planting a seed deep inside that will grow as a classy chef one day.

Of course, those are the golden memories of my life when I used to go to my grandmother's house, who was the best chef in the whole family. That's when she synchronized all her cooking skills in me.

Luckily, I am a part of this inherited chain. The talent she transferred to my mother and then me. Yes, I strongly hope to see even better cooking skills in my little one (Oh, why I am thinking too far ahead).

Coming back to my story, at the age of seven, when other girls of my age were playing with dolls, I was making local sweets and selling them from our home. That was not a need of time, rather that was my foundation phase, and I had no idea that my love for food would take me where I am today.

I have prepared thousands of recipes over the years. I love twisting ingredients to make the healthier version of recipes. Today I am here with a delicious and nutritious banana bread recipe.
