Quick Banana Bread Bickies in your Thermomix!
Thank goodness for Episode 140 of the podcast, we say! Because of the theme of that episode (Quick Biscuits) we were prompted to create these banana bread bickies that have for SURE become a new family favourite. They feel completely decadent, but truthfully… they are really quite healthy!
We have used cacao nibs instead of sweet chocolate chips for this recipe. They give the texture of “Hey there’s some chocolate in here!” without the sugar. We love that. You can use choc chips or just omit if you prefer.
No linseeds? We’ve actually tried these without linseeds as well and they are still delicious… just a little softer. So don’t let the lack of ‘fancy ingredients’ like linseeds and cacao nibs stop you my friend!
They are quick, easy (especially in your Thermomix!), delicious AND healthy. You don’t even need to add extra sweetener if you don’t want to!
