History

This banana bread recipe doesn’t call for any date puree. EXCUSE ME? Yep, it’s one of my very few recipes that don’t contain date puree… or added sugar.  This time, the bananas steal the show.

Unbelievable but true, banana and thyme is an outstanding taste combination. And this recipe is as wholesome as it is delicious. What’s not to like?

This recipe is another great example that proves we don’t need to use sugar (white or brown) to sweeten our decadent desserts and snacks.

Bon appétit!
