    Could you make it vegan by using Chia seeds soaked in water instead of the eggs?

    I haven't tried chia before but I think a flax egg would work. Let me know would love to know how it goes :)

    Thanks for letting me know, apologies, I have updated the recipe. The dates, should be de-seeded and quartered lengthways.

    I really like this idea and the simplicity of it. I have one critique of your photos to help you sell the idea to readers and get more votes: the scattered seeds should not be in every photo. Although the seeds give it an artistic flair, there are no shots where seeds are not left lying around which makes it look like really crumbly seed bread that falls apart way too easily. I would suggest at least one photo without the scattered seeds to show that it is not a crumbly type of bread and slices nicely.

    I would really like to try this recipe. it looks simple, delicious and super healthy. Adding to my favorites. Thanks for uploading!
