Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


1. Line the base and sides of an 18 cm × 8 cm loaf tin with baking paper.

2. In a food processor, process together LSA (linseeds, sunflower seeds and almonds), dates and coconut oil until the mixture comes together in a ball.

3. Press evenly over the base of the prepared tin.

4. Blend avocados, finely grated zest and juice of limes and 3 tablespoons coconut oil for 1 minute or until smooth.
