2 large eggs
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
8 dates, pitted and soaked, drained and then blended into a paste

2 cups True Protein Instant Oats
1/4 cup walnuts, broken

1. Pre-heat your oven to 180°C and grease and line a loaf tin with baking paper.

2. Add all of the wet ingredients to a blender or Nutri-bullet, the bananas, eggs, date paste, vanilla and coconut oil. Blend quickly until blended but not over-whipped.

3. Sift over the oat flour, baking soda and powder and fold through until combined.
