Sugarless Banana Bread

This Sugarless Banana Bread is one of my favorites of all the breads of all time. You think your life is miserable without sugar? Well, after baking this, think again! Hell yeah, it’s sweet! It’s sweet, and fragrant, and very banana, and contains more fiber, more complex carbohydrate, and lower cholesterol… Okay, I’ll stop talking like a health-freak, and you stop throwing things on me!

One word: you must try this at home.

Ow yea, I sell this for one hundred fifty thousand rupiahs a loaf. Expensive? Think again.

Happy World Bread Day, everybody. What can we do without breads really? May Allah bless the inventor.
