Having made this both vegan and non, I can substantially say the flavors are best following the recipe, particularly the seedbrittle which caramelizes on top for a twist on a beloved dish.



Seed Brittle
100 grams / 1/2 cup superfine/caster sugar
1/4 cup mixed seeds
Banana Bread
3 frozen bananas, peeled
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/3 cup coconut oil
2 tablespoons chia seeds
5 tablespoons water
320 grams / 2 cups plain flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons crushed seed brittle
1 fresh banana, peeled


  • Line a baking tray with silipat sheet or greaseproof paper and brush coconut oil over the surface (if you don’t the brittle will stick).
  • Place the sugar in a saucepan pan on medium heat, stirring consistently until brown, approximately 4 minutes, add the seeds and stir through swiftly.
  • Pour onto the tray and spread as thin as possible swiftly as it will set within a minute.
  • Set aside to cool.
  • Grind the brittle up in a blender until it is a fine powder and set aside.
  • For the bread, preheat the oven to 180C/360F and line your loaf tin with greaseproof paper.
  • Place the chia seeds and water into a small bowl and set aside for 10 minutes.
  • Place the frozen bananas and brown sugar in a bowl combine until smooth and well mixed.
  • Add in the coconut oil and whisk until well combined.
  • Add the chia mixture and whisk to combine until smooth.
  • Place the flour, baking powder and baking soda into a bowl and add to the mixture, add 3/4 cup crushed seed brittle and fold together until well combined.
  • Add in the coconut oil and whisk until well combined.
  • Add the chia mixture and whisk to combine until smooth.
  • Place in the baking tray and spread to even out, slice the fresh banana in half and lay cut side on top, sprinkle the two tablespoons of seed brittle on top and bake for 50 minutes until a skewer comes out clean and golden on top.
  • Remove and allow to cool fully.
  • Slice and serve.


Frozen bananas in this recipe: The bananas used in this recipe are frozen which heightens their sweetness and makes it easier to mash them into the dish.
