    Deliciously Ella’s Banana & raisin loaf


    5 very ripe bananas
    300g oats
    6 heaped tbsp apple purée (see below)
    2 tsp ground cinnamon
    1 tsp vanilla powder
    6 tbsp maple syrup
    2 tbsp coconut oil, melted plus extra for brushing the tin
    150g raisins 

    For the apple purée (makes one large jar):
    10 red apples, peeled, cored and chopped into bitesize pieces


    1. To make the apple purée, place the apples in a large saucepan and add 250ml cold water. Cook for 30-40 minutes, until they’re very soft.  Drain any remaining water and add the apples to a blender or a food processor, and blend until smooth and creamy. Keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

    2. When you’re ready to make the banana loaf, preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. 

    3. Mash the bananas with a fork or masher in a large bowl.

    4. Place the oats into a food processer and whizz until they form a flour. Add to the bowl, along with all the remaining ingredients, and mix well.

    5. Grease a 1 kg loaf tin with coconut oil and base line with parchment paper, then pour in the mix and bake for 50 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. Leave to cool for 30 minutes before serving.
