1 Preheat your oven to 180c and line a loaf tin with baking paper.

2 To make the banana bread, add the bananas, honey and coconut oil into your food processor and blend until everything is well mixed.

3 Crack in the egg and blend again.

4 Next, sift the dry ingredients and pour these into the food processor. Blend everything together, until you’re left with a smooth cake mixture.

5 Pop this into your lined tin and bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes. Test to see if the cake is ready by piercing it with a skewer or cake taster to see if it comes out clear.

6 Place the cake onto a wire rack and allow to cool completely.

7 Meanwhile, to make the icing, blend together the coconut cream, cashews, honey and matcha to create a completely smooth and creamy frosting.

8 Once your loaf is cooled, pour over the frosting and decorate.
