  • Makes 1 medium loaf

  • 1/2 rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons flaxseed
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon honey
In This Recipe
  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Prepare a baking sheet covered with baking paper and sprinkle a little wholemeal flour.
  2. Mix the flour, oats, flaxseed, baking soda and salt. Form a small pit in the center and add the buttermilk and honey. Knead by hand. When dough is smooth (it is normal that it remains sticky) form a ball.
  3. Place the ball on your cooktop. Using a large knife, draw a fairly deep cross. Sprinkle the bread with a little wholemeal flour. Bake for 45 minutes at 400°F (200°C).
