METHOD:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 150ºC and line a square tray with a baking sheet. 
  2. Rinse, de-stem and roughly chop the strawberries. Add to a pot along with the chia seeds and a few tablespoons of water. Bring to boil and leave to simmer until strawberries are mushy and start to thicken. 
  3. In a blender, combine the chickpeas, banana, peanut butter and date syrup. Blend until very smooth. Then add salt, baking powder and coconut flour. Pour ¾ of the batter into the tray. Then top with the strawberry jam and spread evenly. Drop the remaining ¼ of the batter and spread/swirl through the top jammy layer. 
  4. Bake for 15 minutes and then cover with foil to steam until cool. Enjoy warm as a breakfast treat or as an on-the-go snack. You can freeze the squares for up to 3 months.
