I am not a particularly big fan of bananas, while I don’t dislike them I rarely eat them but I do remember that during university I ate one every morning with weetabix as I had read that they enhanced brain power. This week a friend was eating one before we worked out to help ease muscle cramps and it got me thinking about the many benefits to eating bananas. They contain Vitamin B9 and the amino acid tryptophan which are both said to be mood enhancing and bananas have also been found to aid digestion.
As a treat for my friend I decided to bake them some banana bread using this recipe which includes swirls of nutella. There is something about loaf cake that I find very comforting and although the days have been warm and sunny, the darker evenings have called for some warm treats.
