Banana is one of, if not the best ingredient for baking! It makes everything taste incredible, and these little gems didn’t disappoint. This recipe came about when my friends and I were in the midst of our version of ‘Come Dine With Me’, and I was looking to create lot’s of little desserts purely because I can never decide on just one thing! They’re also the perfect option for weekday snacking, as they keep really well in the freezer.
If you get creative in the kitchen, I would love for you to share them with family and friends by tagging me @oliviafurner across all socials. I know I ask on every post, but it really does make such a difference. I’m so grateful for your support, so a huge thank you for even reading this!
- 2 bananas
- 2 tbsp almond butter
- 2 tsp maple syrup
- 1 banana
- 4 tbsp almond milk
- 4 tbsp almond butter
- 6 medjool dates (You can use normal dates, but soak them before use to soften).
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- Prepare a tray: Grease a baking tray with oil or butter, and line with baking paper.
- Make the base: Add the butter and biscuits to a food processor, and blend until well combined and they form a paste like consistency. Transfer this to the tray, and press down using the back of a metal spoon. Place into the freezer.
- Second layer: Add the the ingredients to a food processor, and blend until well combined and smooth. Take the tin out the freezer, and spread the second layer over the biscuit base. Place this back into the freezer, and leave for 30-45 minutes or until completely frozen.
- Make the top layer: Once again, add the ingredients to the food processor and blend until everything has broken down and smooth. You might need to check a couple of times, as the dates can take a while to break down. Providing the middle layer has set, you can now spread this mixture on top ensuring it’s evenly distributed. Place back into the freezer, and leave for another 10-15 minutes.
- Once you’re ready, cut into individual squares as large or little as you wish!
I try my hardest to balance all my recipes out, to ensure they don’t all include a food processor. I would say it’s a brilliant piece of equipment to invest in, but understand it’s not everyone’s priority. You could give this recipe a go without one, just ensuring you chop the dates fine enough.
