  • 5 ripe bananas peeled
  • 150 g gluten-free self-raising flour
  • 100 ml unsweetened plant milk
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp gluten-free baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 100 g pecans or walnuts crushed


  1. Preheat the oven to 200oC/Gas Mark 6.

  2. To a large mixing bowl, add 4 bananas and mash with a fork. Add the flour, milk, maple syrup, cinnamon and baking powder and mix. Add three-quarters of the nuts and mix again.
