METHOD

Preheat oven to 180 degres celsius

Whisk together the mashed banana, apple, eggs, sugar and vanilla. Add the butter and mix well. Stir through the oats and flour.

Grease and line a square baking tin. Pour the batter in and use the back of a spoon to smooth the top.

Bake for 35 – 40 minutes until golden and lightly firm.

Will be easiest to slice if cooled completely first (ideally in the fridge). Will last up to 4 days in an airtight container. Freezes really well.
