This recipe was provided by Sam from Barrio, which his kids love just as much as Barrio customers! A good recipe if you have chickens laying eggs in the backyard and everything else is probably already in the pantry. It’s a favourite at the Sam’s Braddon café. Ash – hbh collective


  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup almond meal (I suggest coarsely blitzing up whole almonds to get more texture)
  • 1 heaped teaspoon baking powder
  • Coupla tablespoons of spices (cinnamon, ground cardamom, ginger etc.)


  1. Mash the banana, add the olive oil, honey, eggs, spices and mix.
  2. Fold through flour, meal and baking powder.
  3. Pour into a baking paper-lined loaf tin. Smallish loaf tin is best. Bake for 45-50 minutes.
