    Should there be some moisture in there somewhere?

    The picture shows chocolate icing, so it is not the recipe. I agree it seems a very dry recipe – the banana would not make that much difference. Be interesting if anyone tries it.

    well…did it work, agree seems VERY dry, (cant see the point of the flour if uncooked) as almond meal would have the flour texture and would not need cooking

    I have just made this, it is in the fridge now. You need an extra tablespoon of flour as the banana makes it ver tacky.
    The mixture fills a Chinese take away container.
    I don’t know how it is going to be once it has been in the fridge over night.
    Will keep you posted.
