These cute little buns use bananas as the sweetener, no sugar added, no kneading needed.

2 ripe bananas

1 tsp active dry yeast

1 egg

2 Tbsp butter, melted

350 g flour

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 c raisins

In a large bowl, mash the bananas. Mix in the yeast, egg and butter until fully combined. Stir in the raisins, then the flour and salt until a sticky dough forms. Cover the bowl, and let dough prove until double in size - up to 1 1/2 hours.

Line a 20 x 20 cm cake tin with baking paper. Punch down dough and knead on a floured surface for a few seconds. Divide dough into 9 equal parts. Roll each into a ball and place in your tin almost touching. Cover and let rise for around 45 minutes.

Preheat oven to 190C. 

Place a fork over a bun and lightly sift flour over it, making a fork pattern. Repeat with the other buns.

Bake for around 20 minutes until buns are browned on top and cooked through.

Leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before turning out.
