Banana & pumpkin loaf

This delightful variation of banana bread is packed with potassium. Potassium counteracts salt, helping to lower blood pressure.


120g sugar (or sugar substitute)

1 egg

150ml vegetable oil or coconut oil

2 bananas, mashed

225g butternut pumpkin, peeled, cooked and mashed

150g plain flour

125g wholemeal flour

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp ground cinnamon or nutmeg

50g walnuts or pecans, chopped



1. Preheat the oven to 180°C / 356°F and line a loaf tin with baking paper or grease with a little oil.

2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the sugar, egg and oil. Add the mashed banana, butternut pumpkin and gently combine.

3. In a separate bowl, sift the flour, baking powder and cinnamon or nutmeg. Fold this dry mixture into the banana mixture and stir through the walnuts.

4. Pour into the tin and bake for 50-60 minutes until golden brown on top.

5. Serve warm or cool with a little Greek yogurt and drizzle of honey.
