My banana walnut loaf is healthy and delicious and will satisfy after dinner and late afternoon cravings. Easy to make and a great high fibre after school snack that the kids can help you make!
Walnuts are a rich source of fibre, antioxidants, and unsaturated fatty acids, particularly alpha linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid. These are the nutrients that give walnuts stress and depression fighting properties and they even contain melatonin to help you sleep!
