Online Shop closed until further notice

Due to the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak in the UK we have taken the decision to temporally close our online shop effective immediately, 30th March 2020. Until now our shop has remained available, but the orders we have been receiving have been significantly lower than normal.

While we are just a small, home business between myself and my fiancé, we have decided to take this decision now in the hope that we can help to remove some of the unnecessary work put into the postal service here in the UK and around the world.

We hope to resume normal service as soon as possible when the situation begins to return to normal. We hope all our customers, both old and new remain safe in this worrying time.

Shop Price Increase
From 6th April 2020 prices in the shop will increase slightly, this is due to production costs and card processing fees increasing.

Tree Nuts


1. In a bowl either whisk or beat with a wooden spoon, the sunflower oil, caster sugar, vanilla extract and eggs thick.

2. In a separate bowl mash the bananas until nearly all the big chunks are well mashed, a couple of big chunks are fine, they add some texture to the loaf.

3. Stir the mashed banana into the egg mixture.

4. Sift the bicarb, cinnamon, flour and xanthan gum to the egg and banana mix and fold in until well combined.

6. Grease a 2lb loaf tin and pour in the mixture. Place in the oven on gas mark 4 for around 45 minutes. The loaf will brown well but the mix won't be cooked through in the middle, lower the oven temperature to gas mark 2 and cook for a further 45-50 mins until fully cooked through. (Best way to check if cooked is to push a knife or skewer into the middle and see if it comes out mostly clean)

Soya milk can be replaced with semi skimmed milk if dairy free is not required
