  • 1 cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour, plus 2 tsp. additional for preparing pan



  • 2 bananas

  • 2½ tsp. Baking Powder


  • ½ tsp. Baking Soda


  • ½ tsp. Salt

  • ¼ cup tofu

  • 1⅓ cup Vanilla Yogurt


  • ¼ cup Vegetable Oil, plus more for greasing pan


  • ½ cup Hemp Seeds

  • ⅓ cup Dried Goji Berries

Directions


  1. Set rack in center and preheat oven to 375F. Brush oil on 9-inch square pan and dust with flour.


  2. In large bowl, combine instant oatmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.


  3. In a small bowl blend tofu, bananas, yogurt and oil.


  4. Reserve 2 tbs. hemp seeds and add remainder to dry ingredients, along with liquid and goji berries. Mix just until flour is absorbed; do not over mix.

  5. Transfer batter to prepared pan. Smooth off top and scatter on reserved sunflower and pumpkin seeds. Very gently press them into batter.


  6. Bake 9 minutes. Rotate pan. Continue baking until edges are golden and begin to pull away from sides of pan, and cake tester inserted into center comes out dry, 7 to 8 minutes longer.

  7. Set pan on rack to cool. Cut in half, then cut each half into 4 or 5 bars. Store in a tightly sealed container and refrigerate for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 4 months.
