This banana and blackberry bread recipe is egg-free and you can make it dairy-free by using a suitable margarine and a plant-based drink of your choice – I recommend coconut milk. If you follow my stories on Instagram then you’ll know that I love picking blackberries at the end of the summer. This is one of my favorite activities and I often have my doggo with me eating them – yes he sometimes has paleo tendencies and eats blackberries from the hedgerow!
– 90g butter/margarine, softened
– 50g caster sugar
