HEALTHY OAT BANANA BREAD

 

It is healthy, gluten free and ready with ingredients in your pantry. I limit the amount of gluten we eat to 2-3 times a week, as it helps us manage our overall gut health. The bananas have to be ripe for the flavor to be rich, and chocolate chips lend a beautiful complimentary taste layer.
