Coconut banana bread with blueberries (sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free)

I love making banana bread; it’s so simple yet so satisfying. This recipe differs from my butterscotch banana cake in that it’s sugar-free, gluten-free and dairy-free so it’s very healthy and perfect for breakfast.

One of my favourite vegetables to roast is broccoli because it’s quick and simple, it tastes yummy and it’s one of those underrated superfoods; studies have shown that regularly eating broccoli can protect the body from disease, specifically cancer. Sometimes I like to use olive oil…
