Oats and Chia Bread

"You can call it banana bread as well, but I'm not doing it on purpose. My daughter truly dislikes banana bread. As soon as she detects the banana, she refuses to taste or eat further. But she is in love with this dessert. The toasted chia and oats give the bread a slightly nutty flavour and extra crunch — a perfect way to start your day or have a cuppa."
