Banana nut bars

Great way to use your ripe bananas. Perfect snack to grab on the go.


  • 4 very ripe bananas
  • 115g oat flour
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp. baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 30g butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped hazelnuts


  • Preheat oven to 180°C. Place baking paper in the baking tray and set aside.
  • In a bowl whisk together flour, nutmeg, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • In a separate large bowl, whisk together mashed banana, melted butter, sugar, egg and vanilla extract.
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring just until combined. Fold in the hazelnuts.
  • Pour batter into prepared baking pan. Bake until the cake is golden brown, and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Do not overbake.
  • Remove from the oven, unfold from the pan, and cool completely on a wire rack before slicing and serving.
