Banana Oat Bread - A GI of 36 and 100% Delicious!

This low glycemic Banana Oat Bread is the perfect pairing with a morning cup of coffee!  But that doesn't mean it cannot be enjoyed anytime throughout the day as a delicious snack.  Oat bran and oat fibre help to leave you feeling satisfied longer.  Honey in place of refined sugar also helps to lower the GI.  Don't have avocado oil?  No problem!  Use your favourite coconut oil, flax seed oil, extra virgin olive oil or other vegetable oil in its place.  Apple sauce also works in place of oil - just be sure it is plain apple sauce to maintain the flavour profile.
