Here is another “wheat free” bread recipe, this time made with oats. If you used gluten free oats, then this too would be a gluten free bread.
This bread is also full of “good for you” ingredients.
It is delicious fresh or toasted.
This bread is so easy to make and is really delicious. It is based on a recipe that my friend Nicole shared on her facebook page, “Rejuvenating Health with Nicole“.
- 1 500g tub organic natural yoghurt
- 360g porridge oats
- 1 egg
- 3 – 4 tbsp coconut or almond milk
- 2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup of nuts and seeds – I use walnuts and a mix of pumpkin, sunflower and sesame seeds
- Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease a loaf tin (I use coconut oil) and line the bottom with non stick baking paper.
- In a mixing bowl combine the yoghurt, beaten egg, milk and bicarbonate of soda.
- Stir in the oats, salt and mixed nuts and seeds.
- Ensure all ingredients are well mixed and then put into the greased loaf tin.
- Sprinkle a few extra seeds on top.
- Place in the oven and cook for 50 minutes (depending on your oven). It should be nice and brown on top.
- Remove loaf from the tin and return to oven upside down for 5 minutes to crisp the bottom and sides.
- Remove from oven and leave to cool.
Benefits of eating oats include
Oats are a rich source of dietary fibre which is very good for your digestive health. Importantly, oats contain beta-glucan a form of soluble dietary fibre which has been found to help lower cholesterol levels. Oats also have a low glycemic index which means that they are absorbed more slowly and this helps regulate blood sugar levels as well as making you feel satisfied for longer. Oats are a very good source of Magnesium, Manganese and Phosphorus and a good source of Biotin and Vitamin B1. They are also a good source of protein.
