This layered cake is rich and indulgent – but secretly healthy too! With a ‘biscuit’ peanut oat base topped with a protein-packed banana topping with a hidden ingredient, chunks of chocolate and crunchy peanuts complete this tasty snack or treat!

My love of healthy food was originally inspired by my commitment to fitness and wellbeing. But that's not to say I don't like a treat from time to time. It was when I started looking for healthy treats that still satisfied my sweet tooth that I realised how little there was to choose from. Despite being labelled 'healthy', many of the recipes I came across relied heavily on processed sugar and fat - which is why I decided to take matters into my own hands.
