GREAT for an afternoon healthy snack. Tastes just like a moist cake but with no nasties and lots of healthy lovelies!! Quick and easy to make and afternoon snack halo inducing!!!

 

Ingredients (makes 8 large slices)

1 cup of cashew nuts soaked for 1 hour or more in water

3 tbsp pomegranate paste*

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1 ripe banana

1 cup cooked quinoa

1 cup of oats

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 egg

1 tsp cinnamon powder

1 tsp baking powder

1 tbsp unsweetened coconut flakes

1 tbsp coconut oil

Pinch of salt

 

* I bought my pomegranate paste from a middle eastern deli, but you can also get it on Amazon. Worth buying as there are a lot of other great recipes you can use it for – more of which will be appearing on here (it’s my new favourite ingredient!!)

Method

1. Blend the soaked cashew nuts with a tablespoon of water to a creamy consistency. (It can still have small lumps in!)

2. Mash up the bananaa

3. Add all the ingredients together in a large bowl and bring together with your hands

4. Spread the mixture out onto silpat or a greased baking tray till it is about 1/4 inch thick. Mark out your cake slices  (should make large 8 slices)

5. Bake at 350f for 20 minutes.

Soft, tasty and healthy! Enjoy!!!

ps – these would be great as a sweet breakfast treat to kick off your day too!
