Chia Seed and Banana Breakfast Loaf


  • 4 large ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g dates, finely chopped
  • 3 heaped tbsp yoghurt
  • 50g dried coconut
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • 300g self-raising flour
  • ¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • A pinch of cinnamon

You will also need:

  • A loaf tin.
  • Baking paper or a bit of margarine for the tin.

Serving Suggestion: Spread a layer of cottage cheese and then sprinkle some raspberries on top for sweet decoration.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Line a loaf tin with baking paper, or grease with margarine.
  3. In a large bowl, add the bananas and eggs, one at a time. Whisk well.
  4. Fold in the dates, yoghurt, coconut and chia seeds.
  5. Sieve in the remaining ingredients, except the milk.
  6. Add 2 tbsp milk for a smoother texture. Pour into the loaf tin.
  7. Bake for 30 mins, then cover with foil and continue to bake for 20-30 mins until the loaf is golden.

Tip: Test with a skewer. If it comes out clean when inserted into the centre, you’re good to go! If not, bake for another 5 minutes and test again.
