In a bowl of your electric mixer mash the bananas, then add the melted coconut oil

flax egg, milk and sugar. Mix until all the ingredients are combined

Add the flour, baking powder, salt and matcha powder. Stir them in just until combined

Line a bread loaf with parchment paper and pour in the batter. Slice up the 3rd banana length-wise and lay it on top of the batter

Bake at 180 for about 40-45 min or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.

Let the bread cool down completely before slicing it.
