This is a great recipe to make when you’ve some over ripe bananas that need using up quickly, it is so easy and really tasty. Great toasted and served with a spread of your choice or a drizzle of maple syrup.

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

½ tsp Himalayan salt

In a large bowl, mash the bananas, add the brown sugar, oil, vanilla extract, milk and whisk together

Sift the flour, cinnamon, bicarb and salt and with a spatula incorporate into the wet mixture.

Add the chocolate and pour into prepared tin

Cook for 45-55 mins – wooden skewer should come out clean.

Allow to cool completely before slicing

  1. Hi Nicky
    I tasted your Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies yesterday and they were out of this world, thank you!
    I wanted to know more about the ingredients for 85% chocolate you use, is the other percentage cocoa butter? I’ve been vegan and sugar free (but will have coconut sugar and natural fruit sugars) for 18 months now and always looking for these ingredients in my desserts and treats, and I can see you have a few items there already online. Could you recommend a few of your favourites? look forward tasting more of your items.

    1. Thank you so much for your extremely kind words. I use the Green & Blacks 85% cocoa chocolate because it is recommended by the Vegan Society, it still uses a little sugar but not much. I have tried and cooked with quite a few chocolates but I still prefer this one, not ideal in terms of sugar content but by far the best tasting! In terms of my products and other vegan products I’d recommend to you, I love the Almond Butter Cookies, Superfood flapjacks, Vegan Almond Blondies and any of the energy bite, they are great for a quick pick me up. I’m so pleased your a fan, thank you x
