- Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a 9" square pan with greased parchment paper.

- Stir in the egg powder, flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt, then fold in the butterscotch bananas and seeds.
- Bake for 50 minutes, until tests done. Cool completely in the pan.
