Banana and Pear Slice

Makes about 20-30 pieces

Ingredients

50g coconut oil or butter, plus a little extra for greasing

2 T smooth peanut butter or other nut butter

2 tsp honey or maple syrup

1 tsp vanilla essence and ¼ tsp cinnamon

2-3 ripe bananas, mashed

1 apple or pear, grated but not peeled.

250g rolled Oats

85g dried apricot or prunes, chopped

100g raisins

85g mixed seed (I used pumpkin, chia, sesame and linseed)

Method

Heat oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3.

  1. Grease and line a 20cm square tin with baking parchment.
  2. Heat the oil, nut butter and honey or maple syrup in a small pan until melted. Add the mashed banana, apple/pear, vanilla and cinnamon, and 100ml hot water, and mix to combine.
  3. Tip the oats, the dried fruit and the seeds into a large bowl.
  4. Pour in the combined banana and apple and stir until everything is coated by the wet mixture.
  5. Tip into the cake tin and level the surface.
  6. Bake for 55 mins until golden.
  7. Leave to cool in the tin.

Cut into 20-30 pieces to serve or store in an airtight container in the fridge.

They will keep for 3-7 days if chilled.

Can be frozen so are handy for making in advance of when needed, or freeze your batch in portions to stop them all being eaten at once!
