Banana Bread

The riper your bananas the better!

I like to always keep a stash in a bag, peeled and frozen ready for baking and smoothie making.

  • 6 ripe bananas

  • 3 cups of rolled oats

  • 2 large eggs, room temperature

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder

  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts *optional

  • Cinnamon to taste

I like to top my uncooked bread with different fruits, seeds or nuts just before cooking. Bruised pears and apples the kids refuse to eat make a common appearance or bananas and berries straight from the freezer work well too! The extra fruits add a great texture and natural sweetness. If you feel you do need a little more sweetness, a drizzle of maple syrup or honey seals the deal nicely too.

I use my thermomix for this recipe, but any blender or food processor will work too.

  1. Preheat to 180dg and line a large bread loaf tin in baking paper.

  2. Add all ingredients (minus the optional walnuts) into a blender and blend at high speed until a thick cake batter forms. Oats should be fully processed at this stage.

  3. Add walnuts and stir through.

  4. Top your bread with any fruit or nuts of choice and bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden, springy to touch and when a skewer test returns clean.

The bruised apples that regularly come home from school commonly make a tricky trip in and on top of my breads and muffins... Like on this bread pictured below. Ive added extra walnuts, unpeeled and sliced red delicious bruised unwanted apples and a drizzle of maple syrup.

The kids will never know that the apples refused one day are the ones they are enjoying for morning tea the next! Perfect crime. As they say... waste not want not!
