Trilogy Slice: Banana, Coconut & Chocolate

Made it up, stole from some and added my own to create this yummy slice. i was craving that oat-y, slightly crunchy round the edges but gooey in the middle sensation with those bursts of chocolate chip mixed in with that warm banana that just all explodes in the mouth.

This is how I did it - wet ingredients, mash and beat them all up together in this order

  • 3 - 4 ripe bananas mashed in a bowl

  • teaspoon of cinnamon

  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

  • 3 table spoons of coconut oil melted

  • one egg

  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar (being honest, not sure you need it, depends how sweet you like things to be, I think the chocolate chips might be enough)

  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder

  • handful of dark chocolate chip buttons

  • handful of dry shredded coconut

Once all that is nicely beaten together add in:

  • 2 1/2 cups of almond flour

  • 2 cups of oats

The fun thing about this recipe is I reckon you could throw anything in there, the oats and almond meal make the base as do the bananas so the rest is taste. You could use dried apricots or raisins. I just kept adding oats and almond flour till i had a thick gooey batter that was not runny but not solid. I put it in a square brownie dish and baked for about 50 - 60 mins on 350F, or until knife comes out clean.

it’s a bit of an experiment, maybe I got lucky as it came out great for me, especially when still warm from the oven :)
