Serves 4-6


1 tablespoon of odourless coconut oil

250g tahini (we recommend Belazu from Waitrose or Ocado)

2 large bananas

2 tablespoons of mixed seeds (sunflower, linseed, hemp & pumpkin)

6 tablespoons of oats

1 tablespoon of maple syrup

1 teaspoon of vanilla paste or essence


Pre heat over to 150 degrees, warm the coconut oil in a large baking tray

In a mixing bowl mash up the banana, add tahini, maple and vanilla. Next, add in the dry ingredients and stir together until you have a sticky thick mixture. Tip this onto the warmed baking try, spreading the mixture out and breaking up into large chunks. Bake for 10 minutes at 150 degrees, take out and break each large chunk in half, bake for another 10 minutes at 160 degrees. Break up one more time and bake at 170 for a final 5 minutes. You will see everything is well cooked when golden, with edges turning brown and all pieces moving when you shake the baking tray.
