Oat & Honey Cake

After being inspired by a cake my friend made I decided to make one myself but give it the Naturallea touch. I wanted to really pack this cake with goodness and make it quite filling so I could grab a slice whilst on the go. I say whilst on the go because between moving house and redecorating – my Mummy duties have been pushed to the max with a poorly bubba that is doing a great job at building up her immune system (she picks up a new bug every week). She is also now on the move, wanting to be independent and get to places herself, feed herself, play by herself and yet she doesn’t want to sleep by herself. *yawns*

If like me, you need an indulgent treat that will also give you a vitamin and mineral boost then this cake is for you. Bursting with zinc, magnesium, potassium, vitamin E and fibre, this cake will really fill you up, aide your digestive function and strengthen your immune system.

Ingredients

2 ripe bananas
4 tablespoons of honey
1 tablespoon of melted coconut oil (also a teaspoon of coconut oil for lining your cake tin)
1 1/2 cups of oats
1/2 cups of brown rice flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
Handful of pumpkin seeds
Handful of sunflower seeds
Handful of pecans
Handful of goji berries

Method

Firstly preheat your oven to 190 degrees and line your cake tin with the coconut oil. Then in a mixing bowl use a hand blender to smooth the bananas and 3 tablespoons of the honey together. Add the oats, the rice flour, the baking powder and the melted coconut oil to the bowl and a quick blast with the blender. Stir in the rest of your ingredients and once well combined pour the mixture in to your cake tin. Place in the oven on the middle shelf for a maximum of 40 minutes. After 30 minutes drizzle another tablespoon of honey over the top of your cake. Place back in to the oven for another 5-10 minutes. Check your cake by putting a clean knife into the cake, if it comes out clean then it is ready. Do not over cook as the cake will dry out. Leave to cool on a wire cooling rack.
