Now, how many of us buy bananas, never eat them before they start to go that unappetising brown colour, and throw them in the bin?? 

Well here’s a recipe that you can use up those offending bananas! And once you’ve made it, I’ll guarantee that you’ll buy bananas just to go brown to make it!! 

This recipe will make you a 900g tin loaf 


225g of gluten free self-raising flour 

100g of soft butter 

5-6 really ripe bananas 

50g of dark soft brown sugar 

4 tablespoons of golden syrup 

4 medium size eggs 

100g of chopped mixed nuts (optional) 


Preheat the oven to 165c  

Now, and I told you this was going to be easy!! In a bowl simply mix all the ingredients together, mix well until they’ve really well combined 

Carefully spoon the mixture into your lined tin

Bake for approximately 1 hour 

Remove from the oven, allow to cool for 10 minutes, 

I love this slightly warm, but cold is fantastic too 
Happy cooking
