We were at one of our favourite restaurant the other day and my sister treated us to some of their really wholesome cakes baked with natural ingredient and organic sugar
It was our first time trying their non chocolatey cakes because we always end up ordering what the kids love….Chocolate
We brought home 2 slices of the cakes and after putting the kids to bed, my husband and I gobbled up every single bit of the left over cake
The banana crumble slice left me craving for more and opened up a whole new possibility of making desserts that are sweet and tasty yet healthy or at least not so sinful
And then there were 2 over ripened bananas that were almost falling off the bundle
And the wet weather made me craved for something sweet and savory
And Malcolm caught the sniffle from me and was given the day off from school and was home to have afternoon tea with mom
And I was still craving for my banana crumble
I pored through the internet and found something which was even better than what we had
We baked Banana Crumble Slice with Rolled Oat topping instead of icing sugar
Malcolm who usually doesn’t take banana, lapped up every single crumbs on his plate
And I love the recipe because of its generous amount of rolled oats which is an excellent source of iron, thiamine, dietary fiber and antioxidant
This has to be one of my favourite bake and I will definitely be feeding my family more of this in the future
