This is a tried and tested staple in the home. Also, there is no dairy in this so it is vegan making everyone happy. It is perfect for using up bananas that are past it, plus it is super easy to make because you add the bananas to a blender meaning you’re not chopping or mashing anything. Literally 10 minutes of prep work for a great result.
One thing I would note here is the that the bananas have to be very ripe. You are looking for the brown spots to give you the right sweetness. I generally find they take a week from being bought to reach this point.
Time: 50 minutes
300g of banana (about 4 bananas)
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
1/2 cup of soft brown sugar
1 and half teaspoons of baking powder
half a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
1 and half cups of wholemeal flour
50g mixed seeds i.e sunflower and linseed
50g mixed nuts i.e walnuts and pecans
1. Roughly chop nuts, particularly if using whole walnuts.
2.Start by making the dry mixture mixing together in a bowl the flour, baking soda, nuts, seeds and bicarbonate of soda.
3. Now start making the wet mixture. Peel your bananas and place in a blender. Add the sugar and the oil. Then blend to form a smooth suspension.
4. Fold both the wet and dry mixtures together until no dry flour remains.
5. Grease your baking tin by brushing a small amount of vegetable oil on each side.
6. Scoop the mixture into the tin and bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 30-40 minutes until a knife inserted through the centre comes out clean.
