Chai Spiced Walnut Banana Bread

This is one of my favorite desserts of all time. I can eat it anytime of the day (and that includes breakfast!). It’s filling nutrition rich and super satisfying.

I’ve always had a thing for cinnamon and in my humble opinion the chai spice itself is really satisfying.
That’s why this Chai Spiced Walnut Banana Bread  is my new addiction → full of nutrients, plant-power, not to mention love.

It’s the perfect serving for your favorite people (both friends, family, classmates or even your old grandma). 

  • I prefer using a silicone loaf pan (5 x 11-inches) for this recipe.
