Matcha Banana Bread

I am very excited to introduce a fellow blogger and Registered Dietitian today! She created this amazing recipe with matcha green tea. It’s perfect for dessert while still providing the benefits you want. Check out my previous post about blogger trends to learn more about matcha. I’m thinking I’m going to serve this with a side of vanilla ice cream…
