Apple, banana and oats cake

Last weekend we celebrated in advance a very important event for our family (the youngest member of the gang is tyrning two).
As a very dear guest was a vegan, I wanted to bake an egg-free and dairy-free cake. After a lot of research, inspired by a recipe of the wonderful Ella, I made an apple, banana and oats cake, very easy to make and really delicious!
I didn't have the chance to take more pics, which means it was really successful.

- 6 medium apples;
- 4 very ripe bananas;
- one handful of raisins;
- 300g oat flour / grind rolled oats;
- 2 tsp cinnamon;
- seeds from 1/2 of vanilla bean;
- 2 lg chia seeds;
- 2 lg coconut oil.

Peel and core the apples, then dice them or grate them. Place the cut apples in a pot and simmer over low fire until they get soft and the syrop evaporates (if you diced them, add a splash of water in the beginning, otherwise they might get burnt).
Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
When the apples become soft, remove them from the fire, add the mashed banana and the rest of the ingredients and mix until combined.
Place the batter in a cake tin (line the base with baking paper and grease the margins)

Bake for 30-40 minutes, until it passes the toothpick test.

For the topping, I used peanut butter and fresh raspberries, but any fruit will do.
