Method
  • Preheat the oven to 180C and line a round baking tin with parchment paper (I use a tin that is 20cm in diameter).
  • In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients: buckwheat flakes, quinoa, chia, flaxseeds, cinnamon and salt.
  • Next stir in the banana, sweetener, nut butter, nuts and vanilla extract. Mix well.
  • Scoop into the baking tin and press down firmly to form cake shape. Cook 15 to 20min or until golden. Allow to cool completely before slicing it.
  • Spread some nut butter on top and use any fruit of your choice as a topping.
