About the cook: I have been cooking and baking since I was a freshman in high school and I have been fascinated by health and nutrition for as long as I can remember. Growing up, I played basketball, soccer and tennis and I ran track, but I am currently focusing on running and weightlifting. (I am my mom's personal trainer!) I am a college student studying Biology to be a Physician's Assistant.
About the dish: Banana bread is my family's favorite snack or side dish, but it is so hard to find a healthy version of our baked good! Here is a gluten free, heart-healthy recipe that the whole family will enjoy.
