  • 2 large ripe bananas (250g), skin removed
  • 310g wholemeal self raising flour
  • Water, if needed


  1. Preheat oven to 150 degrees.
  2. Place bananas into bowl and blitz on speed 5 for 10 seconds.
  3. Scrape down
  4. Add flour.
  5. Blitz on speed 7 for 5 secs.
  6. Lock lid and interval speed for 2 mins until a dough forms. This will be slightly sticky. If your mix is a little dry just drizzle in some extra water through the hole in the lid.
  7. Shape your dough into small logs keeping in mind they will rise. If you want a rusk, a longer skinny shape is best. If you are wanting the biscottis have them a little thicker, keeping in mind you will cut these in half.
  8. Place these on a lined baking tray and into the oven.
  9. After approximately 15-20 mins remove from oven and carefully slice the rusks in half. Please dont burn yourself!
  10. Continue to bake until very hard but not burnt. Approximately 30-45 mins depending on size.


  • Store these in a brown paper bag in the pantry. Storing them in a container will soften them.
