15 mins to prep

1 min to cook

  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 160°C.

  2. Step 2

    Soak chia seeds in 1/2 cup water for a few minutes until they form a gel-like consistency.

  3. Step 3

    In a large mixing bowl, mash the bananas with the salt until you have a coarse paste. To the mixing bowl add all remaining ingredients (including chia seed mix) and use a spatula to fold everything through.

  4. Step 4

    Place contents into a lined 20cm brownie tin — you want the slice to be about 4cm in thickness. Top with some extra macadamias and pistachios and bake for 1 hour.

  5. Step 5

    Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tray before slicing up and enjoying with a nice cup of tea!
