Healthy bits

Banana, cinnamon and walnut bread

Banana bread is the best thing to make when you’ve got over ripe bananas. I made this without any oil and no refined sugar and it tastes delicious. Keeping the same proportions, this recipe can easily be doubled or tippled! Excellent with a cuppa, for breakfast or a cheeky and healthy snack.

What you need:

1 large over ripe banana, mashed

1 cup oat flour (or all-purpose flour)

1 flax ‘egg’ (1 tbsp ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tbsp water)

100ml plant milk

2 tbsp maple or agave syrup

1 tsp baking powder

1 or 2 tsp ground cinnamon

a handful of chopped walnuts (optional)

banana slices and walnut pieces

large bowl

The banana bread will keep for a few days in a airtight container.
