Ingredients

Fresh dates

6 individual, pitted and chopped

Dry rolled oats

200 g

Banana

5 medium, ripe

Egg(s)

3 medium

Vanilla bean extract, alcohol free

2 tsp

Baking powder

2 tsp

Ground cinnamon

1½ tsp

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly spray a 10 cm x 20 cm loaf tin with oil and line with baking paper.
  2. Combine dates and 1 tablespoon boiling water in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave on High (100%) for 1 minute. Mash dates with a fork.
  3. Process oats, 4 bananas, eggs, vanilla, baking powder, cinnamon and date mixture in a food processor until smooth.
  4. Spoon mixture into prepared tin and smooth surface with back of a spoon. Slice remaining banana in half lengthways and arrange over top of loaf. Bake for 35 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  5. Set loaf aside in tin for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Cut into 12 slices and serve.

Notes

Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days, or freeze for up to 2 months. VARIATION: Add ¼ cup (25g) walnuts with oats in Step 3 (contains nuts) or swap ground cinnamon for mixed spice.
