Banana quinoa slice

Served hot or cold this sheet cake slice seriously hits the spot. It’s moist, dense, protein packed with a sweet banana kick.

This freezes superbly too and because it’s pretty dense it also travels well… Whether that be to the office or backpacking up a mountain. 

Stir in some extra dried fruit, spices, seeds or nuts, just whatever you fancy to get that texture just as you like it. The quinoa gives it a great texture as it is, this is no ‘airy fairy barely touched the sides cake’ it’s a subtly sweet snack to get your teeth into.

Ingredients
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • ¼ cup oil (I use coconut)
  • ½ cup date paste (or ¼ cup syrup of choice)
  • ¼ tsp stevia (or add another ¼ cup dry sweetener of choice)
  • 2 cups coarse ground rolled oats
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 2 tbs flax/ground chia
  • ½ cup non-dairy milk of choice
  • 1 ½ cup cooked quinoa (1/2 cup uncooked)
  • ½ cup flaked coconut or nuts of choice (I used walnut chunks)
Directions
  • Step 1 Prepare the quinoa (I have pre-cooked freezer portions at the ready!)
  • Step 2 Mix all wet ingredients (except quinoa), add the dry (except nuts) and stir through lightly to mix until smooth. Add the quinoa and nuts in the last few strokes.
  • Step 3 Use a lined medium square baking pan (the mixture should end up approx 2cm deep) spread the mixture evenly and drag a fork across the top for texture.
  • Step 4 Bake at 180C for approx 30 mins until the top is golden and banana lightly browned at the edges.
