A decadent, rich banana bread, made with ricotta and anything I could find in the pantry, like chocolate chips, walnuts and oats. Beautifully moist and full of flavour!

1bananacut in half, to press into the top
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
With and electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter, sugar and vanilla until pale and smooth.
Add vanilla, the egg and the ricotta to the bowl and blend until no lumps remain.
Mash the bananas and mix into the wet ingredients.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, oats and salt. Use a spatula to carefully fold the dry ingredients into the wet. As soon as the mass comes together, add choc chips and walnuts. Do not over mix! The dough will be lumpy and that's ok.
Fill a lined baking tin with the dough, and decorate with the two banana halves. Bake for 50-55min until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
Enjoy warm with butter or whipped cream or ice cream.
