  • Becky Excell4 Large Ripe Bananas
  • 4 Tbsps. of Homemade Apple Sauce
  • 200g Gluten Free Flour
  • 1 ¼ Tsps. Gluten Free Baking Powder
  • ½ Tsp. of Bicarbonate of Soda
  • Tbsp. of Cinnamon
  • 2 Egg Whites
  • A handful of chopped Pecan Nuts
  • Extra ripe banana (optional decoration)


  1. Preheat your oven to 180C/ 160 Fan.
  2. Line a loaf tin using loaf tin liners or baking parchment
  3. Put the gluten free flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and cinnamon into the bowl of the Kenwood Chef Titanium and mix together using the k beater, starting on a slow speed and moving to a medium speed once the mixture is moving.
  4. Using the food processor attachment, turn the dial of the Kenwood Chef Titanium to the ‘pulse’ function to chop the nuts and reserve for a little later in the recipe. Then do the same to mash your bananas.
  5. Add the mashed Bananas to your dry mixture along with your egg whites and apple sauce, mix together thoroughly on a medium speed using the k beater of the Kenwood Chef Titanium until combined.
  6. Add some of the reserved pecan nuts to the mixture and give the ingredients a final mix using the pulse function on the dial.
  7. Pour your mixture into your loaf tin & either sprinkle some chopped pecans on top or slice a banana in two & place on top.
  8. Bake in a preheated oven at 180C/ 160 Fan for 50 to 55 minutes. Check the loaf is cooked by inserting a skewer into the centre of the loaf and making sure it comes out clean.
  9. Allow to completely cool before slicing up.


  1. You can use shop bought apple sauce, but making your own is so much tastier & simple by cooking Bramley apples in a saucepan with a little extra water & cinnamon
  2. I use Plain Gluten Free flour, but you could use Buckwheat, Brown Rice Flour or any other naturally GF flour... basically anything works!
  3. Any nuts can be chopped and mixed in. Walnuts work well, as do dairy free chocolate chips.
