Often people confuse “eating healthy” with “eating less” but thats really not the case. People cut out meals, stop snacking and hardly fill their plates and consider that a healthy diet when in fact its the opposite.
I’ll admit I was guilty of this when I first started focussing on having a healthy lifestyle. I didn’t realise I could still have delicious meals and snacks and still eat healthy.
This banana bread is perfect when enjoyed with a cup of tea or your morning coffee.
And not only does it make a yummy snack but also a perfect breakfast as it contains oats, eggs and bananas – 3 great breakfast foods.
What you need:
- 3 ripe bananas
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups of rolled oats
- Preferably a silicon cake/loaf mould or loose base cake tin.
- Optional: maple syrup.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (160 fan assisted).
Add the oats to a blender and blitz until they form a flour like consistency.
Then add the eggs and bananas and blend until the mixture is smooth. Add 2-3 tablespoons of maple syrup if you’d like it to be sweeter.
Pour the mixture into your cake mould. I recommend silicon cake moulds or a loose based cake tin as the mixture is pretty sticky. I’ve found a silicon cake mould is perfect for this recipe.
Pop into the oven for 35-40 minutes or until the skewer comes out dry. Sometimes mine takes a little longer so I just put it in for 5 minutes at a time until I feel like it’s done. 40 minutes usually does the trick though!
You can either enjoy it warm or wrap it in tinfoil once cooled. I recommend eating within 3 days.
Hope you enjoy it!
