Nutritional values

The potassium from bananas and walnuts regulates the body's water balance and activates protein and carbohydrate metabolism. Walnuts, as a domestic superfood, can lower the cholesterol level when consumed regularly due to their good fats and, because of the fibre they contain, promote the growth of healthy intestinal bacteria. Due to their many antioxidants, they have an anti-inflammatory effect and protect our body against aging processes.

In the refrigerator, the banana bread stays fresh for about a week. But you can also freeze it well, preferably in small portions. You can reduce the sugar to your liking, as the bread has a natural sweetness due to the fruits. The banana bread is suitable as a delicious breakfast spread with a little butter or as an afternoon snack. The sweet bread is also a good source of energy for children.
