Quick and Easy: Banana Slice vegan & gluten free

Here’s another vegan ( egg & dairy free) friendly recipe and it’s gluten free too!

Growing up, I wasn’t a fan of bananas. When they got ripe they had a particular odour that made me want to puke. I could only eat baby bananas. They were sweet and just the right size to eat, small enough and I could eat at least one without feeling sick.

As an adult, I surprisingly eat bananas regularly and the scent does not bother me anymore. I found out that your body rejects certain fruits or veges because you have enough nutrients & minerals or you are either allergic to it. Indeed I did have a lot of potassium and magnesium within my diet.  So as not to bore you further, my lesson on nutrition ends here. You can always search for the benefits of bananas on the web.

Now on to baking! This is one of my fave go to recipes when I want something sweet and nutritious. It’s quick and easy too!

Pre-heat oven at 200C. If you’re a raw vegan you can use a food dryer for this recipe.

Ingredients

450g Bananas / 4-5 large bananas (If you want it less sweet)

75g Grated Coconut

75g Oats

100 ml Vegetable oil

5 ml / 1 tsp of Vanilla sugar

2.5 ml/ ½ tsp of Cardamom powder

I love having this 30 mins before a work out and after a workout and as dessert of course!

A friend of mine modified the recipe to make cookies. I will provide the recipe next time. You could try to make this into a cookie too if you like.

Have you had a banana slice before? Try it and let me know how it worked out!

Have a super week ahead!
