Banana & Chia Bread

Banana & Chia Bread


  • 1 ¾ wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 3 bananas, mashed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup Cobram Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • ¼ cup honey


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a medium loaf tin with baking paper.
  2. Gently combine flour, cinnamon and chia seeds in a mixing bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl combine mashed bananas, vanilla extract, milk, eggs, Cobram Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil and honey.
  4. Gradually fold the flour mixture into the banana mixture and mix to combine (note: be careful not to overmix as this will lead to a heavy batter).
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared tin and bake for 60 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean (note: check after 45 minutes and then every 5 minutes to ensure it does not overcook).
  6. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool before cutting into slices.
