This recipe is from the beautiful Luka from Boob To Food. If you haven't checked her out online yet, I highly recommend you do. You can also find her on Instagram here. If you are starting to transition your little one to solids or you are low on meal ideas for your toddler, she is a wealth of nutritional knowledge. This banana bread is low gluten, dairy free, refined sugar free - super filling, nutritious and delicious.
