Hi lovelies!

Great weekend so far, yes?

Today, I will like to share a recent food addiction with you guys, I don’t know what it is, but I have been so obsessed with banana bread lately and my friend baked one a few months back,with nuts!!! I went mad, I was drawn in, I couldn’t stop!

And so, during one of my study breaks (which was around 1am ), I decided to make a banana bread and share on my Snapchat, before I thought of sharing it on the blog! (Excuses for my somewhat bad quality photos ). When I baked this, I didn’t have nut mix so I substituted it with muesli and I fell more in love!

Before I start talking too much and not give the recipe, lets get right to it!
