Banana and Raisin Loaf

I made this banana and raisin loaf recipe for Waitrose a few weeks ago and have been so excited to share it with you ever since! It’s honestly the most delicious sweet loaf/bread I’ve ever had. The mix of apple puree, banana and coconut oil gives the loaf a soft, squidgy feel, while the  juicy raisins and maple syrup sweeten each bite perfectly. I love spreading each slice with lots of crunchy almond butter and a drizzle of honey – it makes for the best breakfast or afternoon snack!


Difficulty: easy


300g of oats

5 over-ripe bananas

150g of raisins

1 small jar of apple puree (350g)

6 tablespoons of maple syrup

2 tablespoons of coconut oil

2 teaspoons of cinnamon

1 teaspoon of vanilla powder


Pre-heat the oven to 180C (fan). Then mash the bananas with a fork or masher and add them to large bowl

Grind the oats into a flour in a food processer

Melt the coconut oil, until it turns into a liquid. Then mix all the ingredients together

Grease a loaf tin with coconut oil, then add the mix to the tin and bake for 50 minutes or until a knife comes out clean, then let it cool for 30 minutes to finish setting. As all ovens vary, you may need to bake it in the oven for slightly longer. I also find that leaving it out to cool for a while helps the loaf to set properly
