Almond and Banana Bread

"cannot let the weekend start without a good old banana bread. I particularly like this version as it has a crunchy crumble top and a moist, nutty centre. I used almond milk and ground almond meal to max out the nutrition content. It’s not only a damn good dessert but a banging breakfast too."
