Sesame Poppy Banana Bread

Whole grain banana bread! Not too sweet and uniquely full of poppy seeds and sesame seeds! The more ripe the bananas are = more brown spots, the sweeter the bread will be. The excellent nutrition of poppy seeds per 1 oz include calcium, iron, protein, and fiber. Sesame seeds have a good source of calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus. If you wanna get crazy, add in chopped nuts or chocolate chips (I’d opt for the chocolate chips). The bread should keep for a few days and a little longer in the refrigerator. Either eat toasty or cold, straight out of the fridge with a little butter for a great breakfast or snack!
