Lupin, Zucchini, Banana and Chocolate Bread

This super moist, high protein, high fibre loaf is a favourite in my hubby’s and my boys lunchboxes. It freezes really well too, so make a few loaves, slice them and pop in the freezer for fast lunchbox food. Enjoy and don’t forget to share your creations with me! x Kristen
