  • 125g Rolled Oats
  • 3 Cups Self Raising Wholemeal Flour (450g)
  • 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder (7g)
  • 135g Brown Sugar
  • 3 Banana (303g)
  • 150g Butter, No Added Salt, melted
  • 1 1/2 Cups Low Fat Milk (375g)
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Essence (10g)


    1. Preheat oven to 180 C. Lightly spray two 17.5cm x 8.5cm (base measurement) loaf tins with olive oil spray. Line bases with non-stick baking paper.
    2. Combine oats, flour, baking powder and sugar in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre. Mash bananas until almost smooth. Add banana, butter, milk and vanilla essence to dry ingredients. Fold together until evenly combined; do not overbeat.
    3. Divide mixture between lined pans. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a skewer inserted into centre comes out clean. Leave in tins for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
    4. Cut banana bread into slices to serve.

    Mish Tips

    • A light spray of oil just helps to hold the paper in place while you put the mixture into the tin.
    • To store, wrap any uneaten slices in plastic wrap and freeze.
