Wholemeal Banana Slice

I baked this slice as a lunchbox treat for my daughters and also an energy boosting snack for me to have with a cuppa. The slice is not particularly sweet, using very over-ripe bananas helps boost the sweetness and the flavour, as does adding some dried fruit.  A delicious way to use up over-ripe bananas!



Wholemeal Banana Slice

200g wholemeal plain flour
90g rolled oats
75g light soft brown sugar
75g dried fruit
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
3 over-ripe bananas, mashed
4 Tblsp/60ml milk, I used semi-skimmed but you could use soy/almond milk
2 free range eggs

Preheat your oven to 180C/160C Fan.  Line a 23cm square cake tin with non-stick baking paper.  Mix together the flour, oats, sugar, dried fruit, baking powder and cinnamon in a large bowl then make a well in the centre.
In another bowl or large jug combine the mashed banana, milk and egg.  Pour into the dry ingredients and mix until completely combined.  Pour the mixture into your prepared tin and level the top.  Bake for 30 - 40 minutes until a skewer inserted comes out clean.  Set aside to cool completely before cutting and serving.
