& yes I usually eat 3 of them at a time. Is it cause I’m still hungry? No! It’s cause it’s so delicious I can’t help myself. Luckily this ‘Maple Banana Bread’ is so healthy that I don’t have to worry too much about over-indulging.

I was able to control myself a bit this morning & had only 1 thick slice for breakfast. Thanks to high protein & metabolism boosting ingredients like oats, coconut flour & coconut oil I was full & energized until lunch!

Why I lOVE Coconut oil:

  1. It has a high smoke point, which prevents harmful carcinogens.
  2. It kills your hunger, so you eat less without even trying.
  3. It can increase your E expenditure, helping you burn more fat.
  4. It prevents Sickness.

But most importantly… it gives baked goods a buttery taste while adding way more health benefits!

So get ready to indulge in this yummy baked good!
