Banana& Blueberry Oat Slice (dairy and wheat-free)


This is a dairy free, sugar free and wheat free delight that is an abundance nutrients and powerful antioxidants.

While most cakes and sweet slices are high in sugar, gluten, dairy and artificial additives, this oat slice is full of nothing but goodness.

The main ingredient used here are oats. Here are some incredible medicinal benefits of oats:

  • Lower cholesterol levels: Oats contain a very specific type of fibre called beta-glucan. Study after study has proven the benefits in which this type of fibre has on lowering cholesterol levels. Maintaining healthy cholesterol levels will greatly reduce your risk of experiencing all cardiovascular conditions.
  • Stabilise blood sugar levels: The fibre content in oats will help to stabilize blood sugar levels and absorb sugars from your digestive system, therefore, preventing risk of type 2 diabetes and other metabolic syndromes.
  • Weight loss: If you have a very strong appetite that´s preventing you from losing weight, then eating oats could just help you! The beta-glucan content in oats has been shown to increase satiety and suppress appetite by stimulating the release of the hormones that are responsible for controlling appetite.
  • Reduce risk of cancer: If lowering cholesterol levels, stabilizing blood sugar levels, preventing diabetes and reducing appetite aren´t enough benefits just one type of food can have, then what about this. Oats have ALSO been shown to reduce the risk of cancer! They contain a type of lignin called phytoestrogens which are very favourable in preventing hormone related cancers such as breast cancer and prostate cancer.

Not only does this recipe contain oats, it relies on bananas for their sweetness. Bananas are not just delicious and sweet but they also come with so many health benefits! They are:

  • high in tryptophan, helping to combat depression
  • rich in potassium which will help prevent cardiovascular disease
  • high in pectin which will help to chelate toxins and heavy metals from the digestive system
  • a probiotic, stimulating the growth of friendly bacteria in the bowel
  • high in fibre which will help to regulate the bowel

So if you think bananas are just a monkey´s food, think again!

  • 4 large, very ripe bananas, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 3 cups whole oats that have been soaked in water for at least 15 minutes
  • 1 cup rice flour or almond flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 dash of stevia (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celcius and line a large cake tin or large rectangle casserole dish with baking paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, first mix together the chopped bananas, blueberries, oats and flour. Then add the eggs, vanilla and cinnamon and mix until well combined.
  3. Pour the mixture into the dish and place in the oven. Cook for 20-30 minutes. This will depend on your oven temperature and thickness of the slice so continue to monitor it.

This slice is the perfect snack when the mid-afternoon slumps hit or the sugar cravings strike. Enjoy!

2015-08-23 16.31.31.jpg

2 cups Brazil nuts, soaked in water for 30 minutes
1 cup medjool dates
½ tsp Himalayan salt
1 tsp vanilla extract

4 cups cashews, soaked in water overnight
½ cup coconut oil
3 tbsp maple syrup, rice malt syrup or honey. You can also use stevia, however the syrup will give the cheesecake a slightly creamier texture.
2 tbsp orange zest
1 tsp vanilla essence

Marble layers:
Divide this mixture into 3 parts:
In one part add 2 large bananas
In the 2nd part add 1 cup raspberries (fresh or frozen)
In the 3rd part add 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)

To make the crust, drain the nuts and process Brazil nuts, dates, salt and vanilla essence in a food processor until the mixture forms a smooth and thick paste. (This process may take up to 20 minutes, depending on the power and quality of your food processor). Press the base into the bottom of a cake tin and put in the fridge.
To make the marble cheesecake, blend all the cheesecake ingredients in the food processor and process until it’s smooth and silk-like with no traces of nuts.
Divide this mixture into 3 parts, in one part, blend the bananas through. Put this in a bowl and in the fridge.
For the second part, add raspberries and blend until smooth. You may even want to add more raspberries if you want a brighter and more vibrant colour. Pour this into a bowl and place in the fridge.
In the third part, add the blueberries and blend until perfectly smooth. Again, if you want a stronger colour you can add more blueberries.
With all these 3 different flavours, dollop randomly over the base. You can also sprinkle in a few whole berries whilst doing so too. Continue dolloping all the 3 mixtures and then with a butter knife, gently drag the knife in an inward spiral direction through the cake. Be sure to only do this once so as to not completely blend all the colours together.
Flatten the top of the cake with a spoken, decorate with berries and wallah!

Apple Spice Vegan Slice

Not only is this vegan slice a true delight and pleasure to the palate, but it’s packed full of nutrients too!

With the majority of desserts being loaded with refined wheat, sugar, dairy and artificial additives, you’ll be sure to find comfort in this one as well as being a boost to your wellbeing.

The recipe features:

Oats – Oats contain a fibre called beta-glucan, which has been proven to lower cholesterol levels, maintain a healthy cardiovascular system and helps to stabilize blood sugar levels by absorbing sugars from your digestive system. This in turn will help prevent type 2 diabetes and other metabolic conditions.

Seeds – Health nuts are going crazy over seeds, and for good reason too. Chia seeds and flaxseeds are both high in omega 3 fatty acids, essential for brain health, reducing inflammation and for healthy hair, skin and nails; high in fibre essential for digestive health and satiety; protein which is paramount for tissue repair, metabolism and hormonal health; and antioxidants, preventing free-radicals and supporting heart health, eye health, memory and the immune system.

Apples – “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”, said our grandparents. But what is so good about the fruit. They are very high in antioxidants, flavonoids and dietary fibre. These antioxidants and phytonutrients may lower your risk of developing cancer, cardiovascular conditions and diabetes.

Who ever thought a dessert could come with such a myriad of health benefits?



  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds, soaked in 1.5 cups of water
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ cup sultanas or raisins
  • 1 large ripe banana
