Pamela’s Strawberry, Banana and Chocolate Slices

There is nothing better than a relaxing night in front of the TV watching Mary Berry on the GBBO, except a relaxing night in front of the TV watching Mary Berry on GBBO with chocolate of some form – in this case, a heavenly strawberry and banana chocolate slice!

We all know chocolate is the way to anyone’s heart, a sure show stopper bake from Pamela!

What you’ll need

  • 1 x can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 2 overripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup almond milk (Alpro)
  • ½ cup oats – can be gluten-free
  • ½ cup gluten-free flour blend (Dove’s Farm)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar (The Coconut Company)
  • ¼ cup stevia (Truvia)
  • 2 x packets Nothing But Strawberry & Banana

For the chocolate sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil (Lucy Bee)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (Meridian)
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa or cacao powder (Kaizen Living)

How to make it

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and grease and line a deep square baking tin.
  2. Place the chickpeas, bananas, eggs, vanilla and almond milk in a blender (Ninja Kitchen Nutri Ninja) and whizz up until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Mix together the flours, baking powder, coconut sugar and stevia in a bowl.
  4. Pour in the blended banana mixture and fold in to form a smooth batter. Spread this evenly into the prepared tin.
  5. Now melt the coconut oil and maple syrup in a small pan, remove from the heat and whisk in the cacao/cocoa powder until smooth and glossy.
  6. Dot teaspoons of this on top of the batter and swirl gently to form a swirl. Now scatter over both packets of the Nothing But dried Strawberry & Banana in one single layer.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes until just going golden on top, then cover with foil to prevent burning and continue baking for a total of about 30 minutes, until firm.
  8. Remove, leave to cool then slice into 9-12 squares. Enjoy!
