Disclaimer: This is probably one of the healthiest things you will ever see on my blog. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good healthy meal as much as the next person, but sometimes those things are not nearly as fun to make and post on this blog. But this? This was fun to make. And eat.
This is peanut butter honey banana bread. It’s packed with protein, mostly oats, and honey instead of sugar. So, really, this is easily something you can eat again and again without the guilt. It’s a guilt-free treat. And I like it. I like it a lot.
Now, of course this all a matter of opinion, but I don’t feel like this tastes like something overtly healthy. It’s covertly healthy. See what I did there?
Anyway, it’s just delicious. You won’t regret making or eating it.
