This Milo Weet-Bix Banana Loaf is the perfect team of a bunch of Aussie icons! And the flavour will have kids and big kids alike coming back for more. Double batch too because one loaf won’t last long.

Australians are set to celebrate the nation’s favourite snack with Australian Bananas announcing the first ever National Banana Day, which will take place on 1 May 2019.

The celebration of all things na-na has been launched to support hard-working Aussie growers who provide the nation with one of the most nutrient rich, naturally sourced products available.

Do you know a youngster who can’t get through the day without their banana fix or are they simply banana obsessed? To celebrate the launch of the first ever National Banana Day on 1 May, Australian Bananas is searching for the nation’s most passionate banana enthusiast!

The ultimate banana-ologist will be a die-hard banana lover. Someone who has a banana each and every day, who always chooses the ‘banana flavour’ and would put banana on anything and everything but wouldn’t be embarrassed to shout it from the rooftops.

To enter, parent or guardians are asked to post a photo or video of their young banana-lover, answering ‘why they are passionate about bananas and what they’d do with $1,000 for their school, sport or community’ on the Australian Bananas Facebook competition post or via their Instagram with the hashtags #NationalBananaDay #PeelGoodFeelGood.

  • Looks great! Not a lot of crap in this cake. Awesome for the kids lunchboxes, after school snacks or even a quick breakfast on the run


  • I wonder if mashing the banana would be still nice…. thanks looks really yummy


  • Oh wow, my kids will love this, especially in their lunchbox.


  • Great for the children – thanks for sharing.


  • There’s banana day sorted


  • I love the addition of Milo to this!


  • I’m totally trying this one. It looks great.


  • Thank you for this recipe, seeing as bananas are cheap again will be giving this ago.


  • The weetbix would add a malt element. Thanks for the recipe.


  • Sounds nice and with some nutrition packed in.


  • Hmmm… not too sure about this one.


  • This is an interesting combination. I bet it will be a filling loaf too.


  • I don’t think I would like it with boiled egg on top of it or pushed into it. Besides, it already has 2 eggs in it.

    • I don’t think its egg, it says in the recipe to top with banana slices and cinnamon! There is only beaten egg in the cake too, which is standard in most cakes !

      • 1 cup milk
        2 eggs, lightly beaten
        extra sliced banana and sprinkling cinnamon sugar, to serve

        so yes two eggs in the cake and it looks like banana with sugar on top.


  • I love bananas, weetbix and milo but never thought of having them together. I’ll have to give it a try but first I’ll make it without the sugar. I think it should be sweet enough without it.


  • Opt for two very ripe bananas and the natural sugar content of them should be sweet enough to leave out the raw sugar
