INGREDIENTS
  • 3-4 MEDIUM RIPE BANANAS (1½ CUPS MASHED)
  • ½ CUP LIGHT-FLAVOURED OLIVE OIL

  3. Add the oil, eggs, sugar and vanilla and mix to combine.
  4. Add the flour and cinnamon and mix until combined.
  5. Pour into a 21cm x 10cm loaf tin lined with non-stick baking paper.
  6. Bake for 1 hour – 1 hour 10 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer.

This banana bread makes a regular appearance in our house, especially during the road cycling season! This is a great tasty snack for morning or afternoon tea. It also works well for cyclists looking for a quick source of fuel on a long ride, or athletes looking for something quick to top up energy before training or events.
 
PS. If you aren’t quick enough to get a slice straight out of the oven, give it a zap in the microwave to warm it up – you won’t regret it!
