Madeleine’s food philosophy is all about enlivening the hottest, happiest and healthiest you. It’s about keeping things simple and delicious so you don’t feel bored or deprived. She believes that with every bit of food we eat, we are influencing how we look, feel and think. ” I think healthy eating should be a way of life, not just a fad or phase.” Madeleine Shaw


4 tbsp melted coconut oil or butter

1 egg

100ml maple syrup

6 tbsp natural, soy or coconut yogurt

2 tsp vanilla extract

3 ripe bananas, mashed

325g spelt flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

1 pinch salt

100g walnuts

50g coconut sugar

50g chocolate chips

1 tsp espresso powder



Preheat the oven to 175ºC.

Melt the coconut oil / butter

In a mixing bowl whisk the egg and add the melted coconut oil / butter, maple syrup, yogurt, vanilla extract and mashed banana. Give it a great big stir.

In a second bowl mix the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.

Add the dry ingredients to the first mixing bowl, and throw in the walnuts, coconut sugar and chocolate chips. Give it one last big stir, then pour into a loaf tin and sprinkle over the espresso powder.

Bake in the oven for 50 minutes. This loaf tastes its absolute best eaten warm from the oven, so enjoy!
