 We all love a good Banana Bread, but if we are honest, it often has the sugar content of a classic cake. So, we thought we’d share our latest creation of a true banana bread that features our Creamy Vanilla Collagen Powder for an extra boost. Yep, it’s gluten-free and refined sugar-free of course. You can thank us later!
