The big banana bake book

We wouldn’t be Banana Moon without Mo, our banana-loving monkey mascot – and resident troublemaker. He insisted on having his own corner of the website and, when we asked him what he wanted to do with it, he mostly just yelled excitedly about bananas. So, without any further ado, welcome to Mo’s banana-themed blog takeover!

Bananas are great – not just delicious on their own, but actually really versatile as an ingredient too. You can do loads of stuff with them in the kitchen and Mo is always keen to experiment. Here are a few of his favourites as well as some contributions from fellow banana lovers.
