“This is my new way of making sweets that can be served as healthy end of the meal or even with breakfast, or for a tea break, without adding butter or sugar. Sweetness comes from banana and cranberries. For added sweetness it can be topped with fruit and covered in light syrup. It can serve as a nice base for a fruit tart.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Beat egg whites with an electric mixer in a bowl until fluffy, about 5 minutes.
  3. Soak cranberries in water in a separate bowl for 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Pulse almonds in a food processor until coarsely chopped; add coconut flour. Pulse until blended. Transfer almond mixture to a bowl.
  5. Blend cranberry mixture and coconut milk in the food processor until evenly combined.
  6. Stir mashed banana into almond mixture using a rubber spatula. Mix cranberry mixture and applesauce into almond-banana mixture until mixture is dense and pliable. Stir in vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Fold egg whites into mixture until just combined. Spread mixture into the prepared baking pan; tap pan gently on the counter to evenly spread mixture.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until edges are lightly browned, about 45 minutes. Cool for 20 minutes before cutting into squares.

I made this recipe exactly as stated. It is uniquely delicious. The banana and coconut flavour are strangely delicate yet lasting. Can hardly taste the cranberry but there is a tangy taste that hints at fruity. Simply, healthy and delicious. Thanks for this recipe. I like these types of recipes, no sugar no processed foods, just the natural flavours.
