Banana bread at its best – a delicious Honey Oats & Pecan Banana Bread you want to bake every day of the week. For reals ;P



3 very ripe bananas (about 12 oz. / 350g)
1/2 cup (120ml) vegetable oil
3.5 oz. (100g) honey
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups (200g) wholemeal spelt flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1.8 oz. (50g) rolled oats
1.8 oz. (50g) pecans, chopped

1 banana for decoration
some rolled oats to sprinkle


1. Preheat the oven to 320°F (160°C). Line a loaf pan (about 9×5 inches/23x12cm) with some baking parchment and grease lightly. Set aside.

2. Add the bananas to a large bowl and mash. Add the oil, honey, eggs, and vanilla extract and mix until well combined. Mix the flour with baking powder, cinnamon, and salt, then add to the bowl and stir to combine. Add the rolled oats and chopped pecans and fold in. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Cut the banana for the decoration in half lengthwise, place on top of the batter, and sprinkle with some rolled oats. Bake for about 60-65 minutes or until a wooden skewer inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Remove the banana bread from the oven and let cool down in the pan for some time, then lift it out with the baking parchment. Place on a wire rack and let cool down completely.


Enjoy baking!
