Apple and Banana Oat Slice

Apple and Banana Oat Slice

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.  But this slice was great, it’s tasty, healthy and ridiculously simple to make.  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?).  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

Apple and Banana Oat SliceIngredients:

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  it’s because I  used big bananas, but my mixture  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.  I put mine in the fridge.
