Cut about 4 bananas into chunks and blend in a food processor until smooth. Put in a freezer-proof container and freeze until just frozen. Remove from the container and blend again to make a creamy frozen icecream-like consistency. You can repeat for another freeze-blend step if you like.

Divide the frozen/blended mixture in half, and add about a handful of frozen blueberries to one batch and a handful of frozen raspberries to the other

Blend each one separately to incorporate the berries, then spoon into the container again.  You can swirl the 2 flavours together.  Freeze again, or serve.

I found this recipe was too moist (as in fell apart when the paper was taken off), So I’m going to try it with 2 cups flour next time…still, they tasted alright!

1 1/2 cups wholemeal self raising flour
1 cup brown sugar
3 tbs cocoa (or 1/2 tsp powdered ginger + 1/2 tsp cinnamon + 1/2 tsp ground cloves)
1 tsp bicarb soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
5 tablespoons oil
1 cup cold water.

Put all dry ingredients into the bowl, then add the wet ingredients and mix well. Pour into patty cases and bake at 180C for 15-20 mins.
