Preheat oven to 185C (fan oven).
Mash the banana then mix in the oil and egg until well combined.
Add all of the dry ingredients to a mixing bowl then add the wet ingredients. Mix until smooth.
Put the dough on a greaseproof paper and foil lined baking tray in a log shape.
Bake for between 22-25 minutes, until golden brown.
Reduce your oven to 175C (again, this is the fan oven temperature).
Cool the "loaf" for about 15 minutes on a wire rack and then slice.
Bake the biscotti slices for 10 minutes on one side, flip them over then bake again for another 7 minutes (keep an eye on them - you want the middle to be a bit soft and the edges to be hard).
Cool the slices on a wire rack, brew a coffee, sit back and dunk!
