7 Method / Steps

Step 1

Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Grease and line the base and sides of a 9.5 x 19.5cm loaf pan, allowing the paper to overhang the sides.

Step 2

To make the topping, combine all the ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.

Step 3

Combine flour, coconut sugar, oats, chia seeds, baking powder, cinnamon and bicarb in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre. Stir in walnut halves.

Step 4

Whisk buttermilk, oil and eggs in a jug and pour into the well. Add banana and zucchini. Stir until just combined. Spoon mixture into prepared pan. Sprinkle with topping.

Step 5

Bake for 1 hour 10 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Step 6

Set aside in the pan for 10 minutes to cool slightly before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 7

Drizzle over the honey and serve with a dollop of low-fat ricotta, if desired.
