I’m happy to say I have almost baked my way through my stash of frozen bananas, but I have been very pleased to have them there since the recent flooding in Qld as the price has gone up to $3/kilo. And I’m not paying that price to make muffins. Â But this slice was great, it’s tasty, healthy and ridiculously simple to make. Â There’s no added sugar, all of the sweetness comes from the bananas and the apples, and the addition of LSA gives it that added boost of healthy-ness (is that even a word?). Â If you are making this slice for your kid’s lunch boxes, remember that LSA is made up of Linseed, Sunflower Seeds and Almonds, so there is a nut component.
Apple and Banana Oat Slice
4 Over-ripe Bananas, mashed
2 Cups Quick Oats
1/4 Cup LSA Mix
1/2 Cup Sultanas (I think next time I will add cranberries)
1/2 Cup finely chopped apple, peeled
Preheat your oven to 180C.
Mash the bananas in a large mixing bowl, then add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
I don’t know if Â it’s because I Â used big bananas, but my mixture Â was quite runny, but it baked ok and turned out beautifully, and very moist.
Line a slice tin with baking paper and pour your mixture into the tin.
Bake for 20-30 minutes, until slightly golden on top, then allow to cool before slicing. Â I put mine in the fridge.
