OATY BANANA WALNUT CRUMBLE


craving something sweet, i decided to 'invent' a spin on the classic apple crumble - the result... a quick microwave oaty banana walnut crumble - yum! 

how? 

3-4 frozen bananas, thawed in the microwave and roughly chopped/mashed
1/2 cup of rolled oats
2 tablespoons of quick cooking oats
2 tablespoons of crushed walnut pieces
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
2 teaspoons of sesame seeds
2 tablespoons of golden syrup (or molasses/treacle - which is what i have used in this recipe, giving my crumble mix a slight bitterness which would be deliciously offset by a scoop of vegan vanilla ice-cream)
1/2 tablespoon of vegan margarine

combine the oats, sesame seeds, cinnamon, walnuts, golden syrup (or molasses/treacle) and vegan margarine. place the mashed, thawed bananas in a microwave safe dish and cover with the crumble. press the topping gently to form a 'lid'. place the dish into the microwave and cook for 5 minutes or until you can see the topping moving and bubbling at the edges. remove from the microwave and leave to cool slightly before serving - to avoid any burnt mouths! you may like to serve this with some vegan ice-cream or enjoy it on its own (for a healthier option), either way it was a success! (thanks to my taste testers for trusting in my creative cooking skills!)
