A delicious caramelized banana loaf that you will enjoy making with the kids.
Recipe type: Baked Goods
Serves: 1 loaf
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tsp bicarb soda
  • ¼ cup macadamia nut oil (or 2 tbsp Organic Coconut oil)
  • 1⅓ cups wholemeal flour
  • ⅓ cup natural yoghurt (for dairy free opt for ½ cup almond milk instead)
  1. Line a loaf tin with foil (shiny surface facing inwards)
  2. Preheat the oven to 130oC
  3. Measure out the following ingredients into little bowls; bicarb soda, flour, natural yoghurt, oil, honey and sugar. You can also crack the eggs into separate bowl, check for shell & lightly whisk. This step is optional depending on your child's involvement and skill set.
  4. Mash the bananas in a large mixing bowl with a fork - I like to use a plastic bowl with a non-slip bottom to assist my toddler with her tasks. Having a bowl that slips and slides is frustrating and difficult to process for the little chefs.
  5. Add the bicarb soda, sugar and honey to the bananas and mix.
  6. Mix in the following ingredients in this order: Eggs, Oil, Flour, Natural Yoghurt
  7. Pour the batter into the loaf tin
  8. Put it in the oven for 90 minutes or until it is cooked through (ie a skewer or knife comes out clean)
