50g chopped walnuts

75g sultanas

Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and set aside.

In a food processor, cream the butter and sugar together until well blended and smooth.

Gradually beat in the banana, vanilla extract and egg.

Add the zest. Mix well until thoroughly blended.

In a large bowl, mix the flour, salt, baking powder, oats, coconut, walnuts and sultanas.

Stir the dry ingredients into the wet and mix thoroughly until a thick dough is formed.
