- Peel the carrots, grate them in a bowl, add the banana (peeled and crushed), grated lemon zest and lemon juice mixed with baking soda and mix with a spatula.
- Now add the oat flakes (reduced to flour) and the baking powder, mix well, add the raisins, the dried fruit cut into pieces, the sesame seeds, the sunflower seeds and the milk and mix to obtain a mixture with a grainy but soft texture.
- Once this is done, line a 20×20 cm square pan with special paper, spread the dough and flatten it so that it is well distributed over the entire surface.
