I like to call this recipe the “I-have-two-overripe-banana’s-let’s-see-what-else-I- have-in-the-cupboard-cos-im-craving-banana-bread“.


So in other words, I scrapped together what I had in my cupboard to make what turned out to be one of the best banana breads I have ever made.

I love cooking and I should probably showcase more of it on Substance. Sometimes it’s ultra healthy and sometimes it’s sneaky food that JD and I just love. I think next up I might do a recipe for my ridiculous dumplings – holy goddamn they’re delicious. Toot, Toot.

I am also obsessed with adding protein to EVERYTHING.





  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1 cup wholemeal flour
  • 3 scoops protein powder ( I used INCA Organics I am a sucker for their branding!)
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup honey or maple syrup or sugar
  • 3/4 cup soy milk  or coconut milk or regular milk
  • 2 eggs, lightly whisked
  • 50g coconut oil, melted, cooled or olive oil
  • 2 large overripe medium bananas, mashed
  • Sprinkle of chia seeds (Optional)
  • Super food (Immureds) from BSC (Optional)


  • Preheat oven to 180°C.
  • Brush a 11 x 21cm loaf til with oil so it is evenly greased.
  • Line the base with non-stick baking paper.
  • Combined the flours, protein and cinnamon in a large bowl.
  • Stir in honey and make a well in the centre.
  • Add the mashed banana to the bowl.
  • Place the soy milk, eggs and melted coconut oil in a medium bowl, and stir until well combined. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and fold. NB: You may need extra milk. Mine was a little dry.
  • Pour the mixture into your pan and place cut up banana on top.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Or if like me, you don’t have skewers, jab in a chop-stick (makes for some questionable holes). Just tell people they’re meant to be there.
  • Remove from oven and set aside in the pan for 5 minutes.
  • Turn onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Cut into slices, toast to serve topped with your favorite spread.

I am the messiest cook – this took me longer to clean up than make, so give it a whirl if you like tasty treats.

Thanks for reading guys!

I love to hear what my online fam-bam has to say! Have you got any yummy recipes? Would you try this?

  1. I’m not sure whether it’s just my phone layout, but there appears to be an error of how much milk to add – mine comes up as “ffi cups” of milk.
