Hi lovelies!

Great weekend so far, yes?

Today, I will like to share a recent food addiction with you guys, I don’t know what it is, but I have been so obsessed with banana bread lately and my friend baked one a few months back,with nuts!!! I went mad, I was drawn in, I couldn’t stop!

And so, during one of my study breaks (which was around 1am ), I decided to make a banana bread and share on my Snapchat, before I thought of sharing it on the blog! (Excuses for my somewhat bad quality photos ). When I baked this, I didn’t have nut mix so I substituted it with muesli and I fell more in love!

Before I start talking too much and not give the recipe, lets get right to it!

HERE’S WHAT YOU WILL NEED :1fc3a6fc-9810-414e-8976-a7c1bcef43c8 

  • 2-3 very RIPE bananas, peeled.
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1,1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup/handful of your favorite nut mixes, or granola, or muesli
  • A mixing bowl
  • A fork
  • A sturdy spoon


  • Preheat your oven to 175°c and butter your loaf pan
  • In the mixing bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until its smooth…
  • Add in the melted butter and mix

  • Stir in the sugar, beaten egg and vanilla extract
  • Mix in the flour
  • Add your extras (Nut mix, chocolate, or muesli) and carefully fold it into the mix.
  • Pour in the batter into your prepared loaf pan.
  • Toss it into the oven and bake for about 45 minutes or until a fork inserted comes out clean!

And look, now I don’t even need to! I love the little twist, I might have to try some with granola…do you by any chance have a special granola that you use?

    1. Haha oh wow! I am happy you saw mine before you went on to Pinterest 💃😋 ( what’s your ID by the way? )
      And yeah, I use homemade granola which is a mix of old fashioned oats, porridge oats, almond, flax seed , cocoa powder and maple syrup. But I kinda prefer it with the muesli mix as it had many variations of nuts 😋
