Got ripe bananas? Let’s make a banana bread!

Makes 30x10cm loaf

You probably got stuck with ripe bananas that are hard to through since you just don’t want to waste them. Well, next time you get stuck in such an unease situation, follow this flour-less Oat-Banana bread recipe and never ever feel the guilt of wasting bananas again.



The more ripe the bananas are the sweeter are gonna be. Therefore you can save some of that extra sugar and get it from the bananas. However, if there are black bits, this indicates an overripe banana that must be included inside the mixture. Don’t be afraid of them since they are actually really healthy for you.


Best oats for this recipe, are Quaker. However, do aim for the ones that are white and feel more like flour, rather than the rolled ones.

Green Apple

The “big” secret to this recipe, calls for a green apple. Packed with a sour and sweet flavour, when grated and added to this mixture, it will elevate the whole cake and combine perfectly its taste with all other flavours.
