One of my favourite ways to wind down on Sunday afternoons is to spend some time in the kitchen, cooking things to see me through the week at work and some sweet treats for my housemates as well. This weekend I was able to do just that, all whilst keeping an eye on the cricket scores!
As much as possible I try and eat vegetables that are in season and therefore haven’t travelled huge distances to the shops. I also like to support local farmers and so used to do as much of my veggie shopping as possible at farmers markets. I started finding it difficult to be able to get to them consistently enough to keep me going so late last year I started ordering a fortnightly delivery of organic veggies, dropped right at my door.
They did some filming at my house last week and we were left with a large pile of very ripe bananas, which I assume were used as set dressing for the scenes in the kitchen. We had been using them in smoothies but they hadn’t gotten so ripe that even putting them in smoothies wasn’t appetising anymore! So banana and walnut loaf came to the rescue instead!
This is a super simple recipe that takes about 15 minutes to whip up, and about 55 minutes in the oven.
