The popular baking competition had its debut series on Channel 4 last summer after a lucrative move saw it pack up the tent for pastures new from the BBC.
While the format stayed exactly the same, reports claim that the show – fronted by Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig – will have one special twist for the upcoming series and incorporate a dairy-free week.
A source told The Sun: “When Noel put forward the idea producers leapt at the chance to try something different — especially as they think it’ll appeal to younger viewers.
“While the show has a loyal fanbase, those in charge are keen to snap up a different demographic.”
The publication claim that one week of the series will be dedicated to the contestants preparing desserts free from animal produce.
The special week would see eggs and cream cheese shelved in favour of products such as kale, creating rather different sweets than what the show's contestants traditionally produce.
Channel 4 declined to comment when contacted by Standard Online.
The Great British Bake Off returns to Channel 4 later this year.
