Turn oven on to 180 degrees and line a small 20cm x 8cm loaf pan with baking paper.
In a blender, blend oats until a fine flour. Add flour, almond meal, baking soda and baking powder to a bowl and combine.
In the cleaned blender, add pitted dates, banana, lemon juice, aquafaba and apple cider vinegar. Blend until creamy and there are no chunks of dates remaining.
Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir to combine.
Transfer mix to loaf tray and smooth the top with the back of the spoon. Transfer to the hot oven and cook for 30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
Once loaf is cool, melt coconut butter and drizzle over the top. Sprinkle with fresh lemon zest and then slice and enjoy!
