A lunchbox favourite, this is a great way to use up any overripe bananas in your fruit bowl.


Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)


3 medium, really ripe, you'll need 300g in peeled weight


2 tablespoons, level, clear

Egg, whole, raw

3 large, raw

0% fat natural Greek yogurt

150 g

Vanilla Extract

2 teaspoons, level

Porridge oats

150 g

Plain White Flour

100 g

Baking powder

1 teaspoons, level


  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C, fan 140°C, gas mark 3. Mist a 900g loaf tin with cooking spray and line the base and ends with a long strip of overhanging baking paper.
  2. Put the bananas, honey, eggs, yogurt and vanilla in a food processor and blitz until smooth. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. Wipe the bowl of the food processor clean.
  3. Reserve 2 teaspoons of the oats and put the rest in the food processor with the flour and baking powder, then blitz to a fine flour. Add to the banana mixture and stir to combine. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin. Scatter over the reserved oats and bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes, until a skewer inserted into the centre of the loaf comes out clean, with just a few sticky crumbs.
  4. Leave to cool in the tin, then turn out and slice to serve.
