What to do with a bunch of over-ripe Bananas other than make wine? These are easy-to-make, full of good stuff and quite possibly good for you!

How to

Pre-heat your oven to 180c

In a bowl, mash the Bananas in a bowl (see photos).

Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl – the Flour, Sugar, Ginger, Oats, Dates, Baking Powder, Bicarbonate of Soda, Salt & Walnuts.


Add the Egg & Butter to the Bananas and whisk quickly together.

Tip this into the dry ingredients, and mix with a spoon until there is no dry left.

Spoon the mixture into a silicon baking tray (as shown).

Use a knife or spatula to smooth over the top.

Bake for about 30 minutes until golden brown, texture like sun.

Alternatively use a skewer and check to see if it’s cooked inside (the skewer will come out clean).
