A nutritional heavyweight, the banana is one of the most versatile fruits when it comes to baking. Gayathri Das whips up an easy breakfast that’s sure to leave you wanting that second helping!



Plentiful, affordable, and available throughout the year, the curved yellow sweet banana may just be the world’s everyman fruit – found in every household, in every country, across every continent.

Peel one back for an immediate energy-boost, or the perfect midday meal. Bananas are rich in potassium and help in the supply of oxygen to the brain. They also regulate blood pressure if eaten on a regular basis, and aid in good bowel movements. Rich in iron, they help in haemoglobin production – and low in calories, they’re perfect for weight management.
