This recipe is super quick and easy, and makes a sweet, moist banana loaf. It contains no added sugar. I’ve made it for diabetic family members, and my toddlers love it. Several friends have asked for the recipe, so finally, here it is in print…
450g/1lb ripe bananas, mashed
120ml/4fl oz sunflower oil (olive oil, grape seed…)
75g/3oz rolled oats
150g/5oz whole meal flour
1.5ml/ 1/4 tsp almond essence
Pinch of salt
Mix all the ingredients together to a soft, moist mixture. Spoon into a greased and lined 900g/2lb loaf tin and bake in a preheated oven at 190 Celsius/375 Fahrenheit/gas mark 5 for 1 hour until golden brown and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool in the tin for 10 minutes before turning out.
