Busta's Great Banana Bake Off


Around 160 million bananas are wasted every year by British families

The Great Banana Bake Off is a whole school challenge inviting staff, children, families and friends to make yummy things from ripe and speckled bananas to save sweet, over-ripe bananas from the bin.

It’s simple and easy to take part, all you need to do is download the recipe book, get baking and let us know how many bananas you have saved.

So, what are you waiting for? It’s time for banana-drama in the kitchen, let’s all go bananas about wasted bananas! TAKE PART!
