This oat, coconut and banana bread is a super quick and wholesome bread that can be served as a snack but my absolute favorite is to serve it at breakfast time. I find there are many times when I don’t have time to prepare breakfast, so this is an easy grab and go for me. This recipe is quick to make and can easily be made in advance, sliced up and placed in the freezer for when needed. It is ideal for days where time is limited. You can grab a slice and pop it into the toaster as it toasts really well which is an added benefit. 🙂
It is delicious served plain with butter or it can be served with nut butter, cheese or jam/honey. Enjoy!
