Directions

  • preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, soak dates in apple juice for 5-10 min. Lay a piece of  parchment paper in a 9×9 inch baking pan, making sure the sides are covered. Cut slits in the corners  of the paper so that the paper overlaps and is flat.
  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, oats, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix and set aside. Place bananas and vanilla extract into blender. Remove dates from apple juice and set aside. Add the strained juice to the blender and blend until creamy. Add dates to the blender and pulse a few times so the dates are in small pieces.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 min, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool at room temperature for 5 to 10 min before cutting and serving.
