Ever since reading Lauren’s banana bread post, I have been craving it so much however confession time: I have never baked anything other than biscuits and cupcakes so attempting a loaf is something very out of the ordinary to me and I was really nervous. I followed the recipe that Lauren shared but changed it slightly. It is so easy, tastes delicious and I highly recommend trying it! Keep on reading for the recipe…


3 bananas, mashed

100g light brown sugar

75ml vegetable oil

225g self raising flour

2 tsp baking powder

2 tsp cinnamon

2 tbsp of nut milk (I used Hemp)

dark chocolate chips


1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees. Grease your loaf tin with dairy-free butter or line with baking parchment.

2. Peel your bananas, pop them into a large bowl and start mashing them using a fork. I left mine quite lumpy however you can mash them to the consistency that is desired.

3. Add your brown sugar and vegetable oil and mix until combined.

4. You then want to add all your dry ingredients in small doses and then fold into the mixture. This is to add air into the mixture which I have heard is good and helps it to rise in the oven. I added the milk into the mixture now because it was resembling cookie dough and then added as many chocolate chips as I wanted.

5. Pour the mix evenly into the loaf tin and bake for 50 minutes in the middle of the oven. It should be golden brown on the top and as with any cake the skewer should come out clean. Wait for it too cool before cutting or just grab a piece while it is still warm. I am not sure how long it lasts however this was eaten within two days anyway…

So there you have it. It didn’t take long at all and during the cooking time, I helped Edd wrap presents which really helped to pass the time. Even if you aren’t the best baker in the world, guaranteed you are able to bake this delicious treat.
