Additional Information:
Our Little FECS made this almost all by himself today, with my supervision. He mashed the banana, add the quinoa and oats (I measured the ingredients for him), We are trying to eat more quinoa, and apparently quinoa is very good for baking too. This is the first time we tried it, and it tasted really really sweet, and our Little FECS love it. I am really happy with the recipe we came up, and have to jot it down, before I forgot :-)
