Healthy bread. Easy to make!


This is such an easy bread to do. GF, Vegetarian, suitable for diabetics. Thought maybe someone might like to try.

What you need:

Oven 180degrees

2 tubs Porridge Oatflakes

1 Teaspoon Bicarbonate of soda

1 x 500g Tub Fat Free Natural Yogurt

1 level Teaspoon Salt (optional)

1 Tablespoon of each Sesame, Poppy, Sunflower, & Pumpkin Seeds

1 Tablespoon Linseed

How to:

Pre heat oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4. Spray a 900g/2lb loaf with 1 Calorie Sunflower Spray.

Put the yogurt into a large mixing bowl. Add the oatflakes, bread soda, salt & seeds.

Mix well until a thick dough is formed.

Transfer to the prepared tin.

Place in centre of oven and bake for 40 to 45 minutes until risen & golden brown.

Leave in tin for 5 minutes then turn onto wire tray to cool.

Note : The yoghurt container washed and dried can be used to measure oats. This recipe calls for 2 container-fulls.

Thank you! I will do this.

Hope you can get some rest...


Sounds like a bread I'll enjoy, I must try it, at least you're way ahead of yourself with the bread & stew. Put your feet up today 👣Is it linseed oil? Let's know how you're appointment goes, I can never get a good night sleep when I've to go somewhere in the morning 🙁


Will try this can olive oil be used instead of linseed ?

There's no mention of oil , it's Linseed as in seed. I'll be using milled seeds as I have these in stock.

Ups senior moment

Think it's more of a word association thing,

PS. Btw Flaxseed is another name for linseed

I don't add the oil of any type. Oats, yogurt, fruit, and handful of milled gogi berries and flaxseeds. Delicious with prunes added. The lovely thing is each time young make it it can be different with just porridge and yogurt the same. So simple honestly. Let me know how you get on xx

Thank you for this recipe, I'm really looking forward to trying it. I have majority of ingredients in stock including GF porridge oat flakes, which I needed a use for. Just need to buy the yoghurt and set a day.

That sounds really nice, I will print off the recipe for the carer to make me some. I have an electric bread-maker so it will be quite easy for her to do this. She can put all of the ingredients in and mix it and then bake it without having any effort? Thanks my friend.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Hey! No excuses this is so easy....any one can do this! 😂

Go on go for it and let me know! I Dare you! 😂 😂 xx

naturalnikki in reply to Olivia1

I wonder if porridge oat flakes are the same as instant oats across the pond. We also have rolled oats which are less processed.

I guess I could always Google it. :)

But watch it be completely different. :)

Take care × ×

Olivia1 in reply to naturalnikki

Not sure to be totally honest. I passed over the instant just in case. But listen even with ordinary oats...everyone come out slightly different depending what I have in my cupboard. I haven't had two the same. And the first one or two was trial and error. Go for it! 😂 xx

Hi naturalnikki & Olivia1

I must admit that I love porridge and eat it about five mornings a week. I usually have it made with my lactose free milk. I find it one of the most delicious food stuffs that I eat.

All my hopes and dreams for the both of you
