Banana Cake

At just 1sp a slice on No Count, this is definitely a favourite of mine!

Ingredients (serves 7):

  • 4 large ripe bananas
  • 100g oats blitzed in a food processor
  • 100g oat bran
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp mixed spice
  • 70g Flora light
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp Myprotein butterscotch sugar-free syrup
  • a tbsp lemon juice


  1. Mash the bananas and mix in the 2 eggs, Myprotein syrup and lemon juice.  Set to one side.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the oats, oat bran, mixed spice and baking powder.
  3. Rub in the Flora with your fingers.
  4. Pour the banana mixture into this bowl and stir together.
  5. Put in a cake tin and bake on 170C for about 45 mins.  Check if it is cooked all the way through by using a knife.
  6. Cut into 7 pieces for 1 point each.

Serve with fresh fruit and 2 tsp choc shot for an extra point.

Or you could have it with a serving of custard.  Make up a sachet of Bird’s low fat custard powder with a pint of skimmed milk (return to the pan to thicken it up) and you can have 60g for 1 point.

*The banana cake can last for up to three days, if kept in a fridge.  I prefer it warmed up in a microwave too.

  1. I used this recipe today and did not blitz the oats and made 10 muffins rather than a loaf – better for me for portion control. They are delicious Helen, thanks for all the effort you put into your website😊
