- Preheat your oven to 175ºC / 350ºF and prepare a baking tin as well. Grease it or line it with parchment paper. (Mine was 15×15 cm / 6×6 inches)
- Mix the dates, nut butter, water, some vanilla and a small pinch of salt, smooth in a blender or food processor. In a large bowl mix the oats together with the date paste until fully coated.

- While the bottom is cooking, rinse your mixer/food processor and mix the bananas completely smooth.
- Cube the apple and mix with the cinnamon and raisins.
- Take out the crumble bottom out the oven and pour and evenly spread the banana cream out. Top it all of with the cinnamon apple cubes and the left over crumble. (Optionally top with a drizzle of sweetener of choice) Bake for another 15-20 minutes. Let cool for a couple of minutes and voila, enjoy!
