Barking Mad Banana Bread

For this week’s barking mad banana bread recipe can be either cut up into small pieces to use for training treats, chopped up into larger pieces for a bedtime (or any other part of the day!) treat or you can use the recipe as a cake recipe for that special birthday and add cream cheese to the top for decoration.


  • 2 ½ cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 2 bananas, mashed up into a paste with a fork
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon powder
  • ½ cup of almond milk (or something similar)


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 Fahrenheit
  2. Pre-grease a loaf tin with a little vegetable oil
  3. In one bowl add the dry ingredients and mix well together
  4. In another bowl add the mashed banana, egg, honey and almond milk and using a whisk blend together until fully combined
  5. Gradually pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients. Pouring a bit at a time, then mix, then add more, then mix, until fully combined
  6. Add the mixture to the loaf tin and using a spatula, spread the mixture evenly in the tin so that the top is flat
  7. Bake in the oven for 45 mins
  8. To check if the loaf is cooked, using a knife poke the loaf and if the knife comes out clean, the loaf is cooked through
  9. Remove the loaf from the tin and allow to cool on a cooling rack
  10. Enjoy!
