Calm Banana Bread

I love coming up with little alterations to bring new life to familiar classics. Banana bread is the perfect thing to bake on a lazy spring weekend. Osmanthus, cashew and flax seeds add an extra aromatic layer to this comforting treat. Feel free to swap cashew milk for another non-dairy milk.
