1 large ripe banana (my was 110g)
50g courgette, grated & squeezed
50g almond flour, hazelnut flour or desiccated coconut *(see note)
50g Medjool dates, pitted
50ml milk (I used oat)
Pinch cinnamon (optional)
Fresh Berries, chocolate chips, flakes almonds or your favourite toppings
Preheat the oven to 180°C (350F) and line a square baking tray (20cm).
Place all the ingredients (apart of the grated courgettes) into a food processor and blend until completely combined.
Once combined add the grated courgette (squeezed) and give everything a very quick whizz to mix through.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared baking tray and smooth over using a spoon, ensure the mixture is evenly spread.
Top with fresh berries (I used blueberries), chocolate chips, sliced banana, flaked almonds or your favourite topping.
Bake at 180°C for 20 minutes, until golden.
Once cooked, remove and leave to cool before cutting into equal bars or squares.
*Note: you can easily do your homemade almond or hazelnut flour using a high powered blender and blend the almonds/hazelnut for roughly 1-2 minutes until fine and powdery.
