  • Preparation time: 20 minutes, plus cooling
  • Cooking time: 1 hour 10 minutes
  • Total time: 1 hour 30 minutes, plus cooling
  • Serves:10


    100g walnut halves
    100g pumpkin seeds
    2 tsp coriander seeds
    3 tbsp chia seeds
    100g coconut oil, at room temperature, plus extra to grease
    2 ripe bananas
    150g pack Holy Moly Breakfast Avocado *
    2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
    200g self-raising flour
    125g semolina
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    1 tsp baking powder

    *(Available in selected stores)


    1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C, gas mark 4. Put the walnuts, pumpkin seeds and coriander seeds on a baking tray; roast for 10-12 minutes, until browned and fragrant. Set aside to cool for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, add the chia seeds to a jug of 150ml water and whizz with a hand blender (or in a blender) until smooth, thick and gelatinous.

    2. Grease a 900g loaf tin and line with baking parchment, keeping some overhanging. In a food processor, pulse the toasted nut mixture until roughly chopped, then tip into a bowl. Blend the remaining ingredients, including the chia seed mixture, plus a pinch of salt until smooth. Briefly whizz in the chopped nuts.

    3. Transfer the batter to the loaf tin and bake near the bottom of the oven for 50-55 minutes, until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Slice and serve as is or toasted, and spread with extra breakfast avocado, if liked.
