I have a question about the recipe "My New Roots' Life-Changing Loaf of Bread" from Genius Recipes. Is the Psyllium husk necessary or can it be left out?

You'll need the psyllium seed husks for this recipe, but they're easy to find at health food stores (check with the vitamins and supplements) or online.

@Kristen, I wonder if you could skip the water and use cooked oatmeal to bind the other ingredients (including the rolled oats) together, instead of using psyllium.
Psyllium is the 'glue' for this bread. If you leave it out, the bread will crumble into little bits. You can get it in drugstores and supermarkets too. I believe FiberSmart and Metamucil have an unflavored version that you can use. Look for fiber supplements that are 100% psyllium husks and unflavored.

I was curious about that too, Kristen. I have a sensitivity to psyllium, so I guess I won't be making this bread. too bad. it looks so good.
