  2. Using a food processor blend the bananas and then add the rest of the ingredients. Blend until all combined and smooth.
  3. Pour the mixture into the loaf tin and cook in a pre-heated oven at 160°C for 1 hour.
  4. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly, then remove from the tin and continue to cool on a cooling rack.

Chefs tip:

This one of my favourite recipes as it is so versatile. It is great as a snack on the go any time of day.
It makes a great dessert warmed up with some seasonal fruits, Greek yoghurt, roast almonds and bee pollen as we serve it at our Supper Clubs.

Also our 1 year old Sebastian loves it as a healthy snack!
