Method

2. Place walnuts in a bag and lightly crush, you want big pieces but not quite full halves, throw these in the bowl with the banana.

3. Add in the flour, bicarb and sunflower spread, use a fork to gently cream the sunflower spread in once starting to combine beat together with a wooden spoon.

4. Add the honey and egg and beat once again to combine and get a more cake like texture.

5. Pour the mix into a 2lb loaf tin which has been greased and lined, place in an oven preheated to gas mark 4 and bake for 50 min to 1 hour!
