Not-bread bread

My friend Karen shared this recipe with me recently. Now you’re probably thinking what I thought…. ‘ummm….these are not bread ingredients….?’  It sounds bonkers but trust me,  it’s super quick to put together, takes an hour to bake, and it’s just gorgeous! I love dunking a big hunk of it in a homemade soup for a warming and healthy lunch, or it’s a great breakfast or snack with some peanut or almond butter – give it a go. You’ll be astounded, ASTOUNDED I tell you!


1 x 500ml tub natural low-fat yoghurt – I like Greek

Porridge oats

2 teaspoons bicarb/baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 handfuls of seeds/chopped nuts/dried fruit of your choice – I like a mix of pumpkin and sunflower seeds


Mix the yoghurt, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Fill the empty yoghurt tub with oats twice, and add to the bowl along with the seeds/nuts/fruit. Mix well and add a splash of water if it’s very crumbly. Put it all into a greased cake tin or loaf tin and bake at 180C for 50 minutes – if it starts to catch on top, just put some foil over it.

That’s it! Let it cool for a bit – but it’s REALLY good still warm and slathered in butter! Thanks Karen!
