Buckwheat Banana Bread



I know you've had banana bread, but you haven't had THIS banana bread... The best vegan, gluten-free banana bread you'll ever have! It's healthy, hearty, moist, delicious and made with wholesome plant-based ingredients. It makes for a perfect breakfast loaf, or afternoon snack. Using only one source of natural sweetener (maple syrup or honey) and a warm and comforting combination of spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, ground clove). Add walnuts for crunch, added nutrients, and a burst of flavor. Slice banana on the top for a beautiful accent as it caramelizes when baked!
