Sensory Banana Bread recipe

Anthony did this delicious banana bread recipe at Kiddy Cook a few weeks ago.  This is a great recipe if your kids are a bit fussy about getting their fingers messy, whilst introducing them to the idea of being near wet textures.

Many kids with SPD or autism can find different textures uncomfortable. This can be a simple 'wet bowl' recipe where all the ingredients get stirred together and then go into a tin to bake in the ovens there is no need to get wet hands.

Kids can either practice their cutting skills with the parchment and you can help with the greasing or we can find it easier to use a pastry brush with a bit of oil to 'paint' the inside of the tin instead. Stirring is also a great way of using bilateral motor skills (using both hands together) as you need to hold the bowl with one hand and stir with the other.

Anthony loved making the banana bread.  We cut the finished bread into fingers once it was cooked and that made it easy for the kids to eat too.


  1. I love banana bread and keep meaning to make it with the boys but never have. I need to do it as you say it is a perfect way to get them comfy with different textures. TY for linking up to #FamilyFun 🎉

  2. I have just filed a banana onto the sideboard ready for getting rid is officially rescued. I think I sense a banana bread loaf coming on! I really enjoy baking with my used to be haphazard and stressful (probably for both of us) but recently we have found a way to make it fun. Thank you for sharing a tasty and simple recipe with #FamilyFun
