  • 43 g Olive oil extra virgin
  • 170 g Honey or Maple Syrup or Brown Sugar Can reduce to 100g if prefer less sweet
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large bananas
  • 60 ml Milk
  • 1 tsp Baking soda / Bicarbonate of Soda Can use Baking Powder but use 2 teaspoons
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon plus more to spinkle on top
  • 270 g Whole Wheat Flour
  • 80 g Chopped Walnuts, Chocolate Chips, Raisins, Sliced Banana, Pecans, optional


  • Preheat oven to 165 degrees Celsius and line a loaf pan with greaseproof or baking paper.
  • In a large bowl, beat the oil and honey together with a whisk. Add the eggs and beat well, then whisk in the mashed bananas and milk.
  • Add the baking soda, vanilla, salt and cinnamon, and whisk to blend.
  • Lastly, switch to a big spoon and stir in the flour, just until combined. Some lumps are ok! If you’re adding any additional mix-ins, gently fold them in now.
  • Pour the batter into your loaf pan and sprinkle generously with cinnamon and a tablespoon of brown sugar.
  • Bake for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
    Let the bread cool in the loaf pan for 5 minutes, then remove fro the tin and place on a wire rack to cool for 20 minutes before slicing.


To store, keep wrapped up with aluminum foil, or refrigerate if you prefer cool.
This Banana bread also Freezes really well. I recommend slicing it up, place a small piece of baking paper in between each slice and then store in freezer bags in the freezer for up to a month. All you need to do is just pop a frozen slice in the toaster for breakfast and you will have weeks worth of banana bread fresh every time!
