Makes: 12


300 self-raising flour

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

100g light brown soft sugar

50g porridge oats

2 ripe bananas

284ml carton buttermilk

75g essential Waitrose Olive Spread, melted

2 medium egg, beaten

100g Nutella Hazelnut Spread


1. Preheat the oven to 180c, gas mark 4. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, bicarbonate of sofa, sugar and oats.

2. Using a fork, mash the bananas until pureed, then mix in the buttermilk, olive spread and eggs. Add the banana mixture to the flour bowl and stir lightly to mix - don’t worry if it looks a little lumpy.
