If there is one thing I hate, it’s food waste. Not everyone has the privilege to have food on their plate every day. Therefore I always make something with the foods that do not look perfect anymore, for example bananas. The less perfect they look, the sweeter they are, which means I can leave out other sweeteners in recipes. They are perfect to use in one of my favourite breakfasts: banana bread. Win-win situation!

banana bread slice


  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 3 eggs
  • 150g oats
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 30g chopped pecans
  • 20g raisins
  • 20g shredded coconut
  • Optional: almond flakes as a finishing touch


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking tin with parchment paper.
  • Peel the bananas and mash them with a fork until smooth in a bowl.
  • Add the eggs, oats and baking powder. Stir until everything is fully combined.
  • Add the chopped pecans, raisins and shredded coconut and stir again.
  • Transfer the batter in the baking tin and decorate with the almond flakes.
  • Place in the oven for 50-60 minutes.

Let it cool down and enjoy it with yoghurt, peanut butter or just like that. Slices of banana bread are perfect for breakfast or to take with you as a snack.
