30 Second Chocolate Banana Slice

My favourite recipes are the ones where you chuck in all the ingredients and mix! This is light, fluffy, chocolate-y with a hint of banana, and very very easy to eat!

This is the first recipe I’ve created since finding out I’m pregnant with my 2nd lot of twins as I’ve been feeling sooo sick and uncomfortable this pregnancy (moreso than with the boys!)! Was a quick and easy way to use up the 2 lonely overripe banana’s on my bench!

Banana Bran Muffins

I love a good banana muffin!! This is a healthier version to the average banana muffin recipe (with the bran in there!).


I use Kellogg’s All Bran cereal, however you can use any type of bran flake cereal. I’ve always thought All Bran to be an ‘old person’ kinda food, but now I am that ‘old person’ and the older I get, the more I’m really embracing this dietary fibre stuff! 😉 And most importantly, my official taste testers – Ethan and Harley can’t get enough of these muffins!!! Especially with a cup of milk!! Deeelicious!!

Healthy Banana Bread

This is a delicious and moist banana bread with a beautiful texture from the sultanas and walnuts.
This recipe is from my FIL’s partner, Jane. After visiting their place the other day, my husband and I were dreaming about it, it was so delicious! I have converted this recipe to make a quick and easy banana bread in the Thermomix! This takes a total 15 ‘Thermomix’ seconds to mix up, so is super quick and easy to make, but it is in a few steps so that the sultanas and walnuts aren’t blitzed up too much!!

 
Add 3 x bananas, self raising flour, oil, eggs, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg to bowl.
 

Mix 4 seconds/Speed 5. Scrape down. 

Add walnuts – mix 3 seconds/Speed 3. 

Add sultanas – mix 8 seconds/Speed 2/Reverse.

Pour into loaf tin… 

 
 …and decorate with 1 x chopped up banana on the top.
Bake for 30 – 35 minutes or until skewer comes out clean.
 
  

Leave to cool for a few minutes before cutting…a beautiful texture with the walnuts and sultanas!

Banana Muesli Logs

These are nut free, dairy free and refined sugar free! I cut them into small log shapes for my boys little hands, however you can cut them into bars, squares, bite sized shapes, or even use different moulds/pans to bake them in.

 These have a texture between banana cake and a muesli bar – so they are like a soft muesli bar, making them very toddler and child friendly! This is great for a healthy office snack, or at home with a cup of tea. These are also perfect for stocking up on freezer snacks, and great for lunch boxes as they are nut free.
