Sweet & Savory Oat Loaf

  • Serving

For anybody who isn’t a fan of baking bread the traditional way, or is warming to the idea but just aren’t quite there yet, I suggest trying this recipe, as it holds a low risk of going wrong, it requires only a few ingredients and easy steps, yet it fills you up just like any homemade loaf – without any processed flour included.

I’m always in awe of how beautiful it turns out since the steps to making it are so simple. With a bit of heat, oats seem like they can transform into anything. Once I discovered how well oats bind with yoghurt (dairy or vegan), I realized that there were so many different flavour combinations you could create with the loaves. Sometimes I like having it as a sweet snack, or sometimes I just as much enjoy savoury with a nice lump of cheese on top. Either way keeps well for days in the fridge. I honestly have never gotten tired of this recipe since first creating it, and I doubt you will either.

    Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

    Step 2

    Pour the oats into a mixing bowl followed by the baking powder and salt. Mix the contents together well, before adding in the cinnamon, honey, vanilla extract and the banana (mash very well first).

    Step 3

    Mix all ingredients together before adding in the raspberries, followed by the yogurt. 3 tblspns was enough to completely bind the mixture for me, but if you feel you need more yogurt, feel free to add it in.

    Step 4

    Line the sides and base of a small loaf tin (I use a silicone one as I find it’s much easier to use) with some olive spread (kitchen paper can be used for this).

    Step 5

    Pour the mixture into the loaf tin, patting it down with the back of a tblspn and leaving some room for the mixture to rise.

    Step 6

    Bake for approx. 17-20 mins (more if needed). Leave the loaf on a cooling rack for at least 10 mins before serving. The sweet bread goes very well with some olive spread and jam or topped with natural yogurt and berries.
