NEED TO KNOW

There’s a lot to be said for the humble banana. A healthy substitute for everything from eggs and oil to milk and butter, it’s a rather wholesome fruit and makes for a great addition to breakfasts, desserts and even the odd snack.

HOW TO

Bulk up nutritious drinks like peanut butter and pumpkin smoothies, while baked bananas are wonderfully comforting, particularly when scattered with crunchy cinnamon oats. Elsewhere, wholesome banana bites provide a sweet treat without the guilt.
