This was one of my greatest discoveries of 2018. I knew porridge bread existed but the sound of it never quite appealed to me until I tasted this recipe. I was looking for new ways to vary my breakfast & more on the run options that differed to overnight oats. It freezes well when sliced & can be enjoyed so many ways. My favourite being with peanut butter and a coating of yogurt & cinnamon. Other options include with honey, avocado, eggs, jam, with soup, or even as it is with a cuppa! It's tastiest when fresh and I recommend reheating in the oven of toasting if using defrosted slices. It has a super fibre content, two slices providing you with 12g, almost half a females daily requirement. Enjoy!
500g (1 large tub) 0% Strained Greek Style Yogurt
70ml Milk (I use whole fat but plant based will work to)
1 heaped tsp Baking Powder
Stevia Sweetener drops if desired
10/15g each of:
Slice down the centre before putting the mixture into the oven & add optional seeds here if desired
80% of Irish people are not getting enough fibre in their diets, thus this is a fantastic option for breakfast or to add to your lunch. We should be aiming for a minimum of 24/35g of fibre per day.
Remember that bowel movements daily are normal, anything less than this - is not, and should be addressed! Two slices also provides you with a whopping 18g of protein.

- Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius & line an average loaf sized baking tin with baking paper.
- In a large bowl mix the oats, yogurt, egg, milk, baking powder and stevia (if desired). Mix well so the mixture becomes the same sticky consistency throughout.
- Then add in the seeds of your choice, and any extras you wish such as berries or nuts, and mix well.
- Carefully add the mixture to the baking tin and flatten it using a spoon or spatula. You may decide to cut a line down the centre to add more seeds as I done if you wish.
- Bake for around 45 mins in total but I recommend removing the loaf from the tin and allowing it bake on its own for the final 5 minutes to help solidify the sides & base.
- Allow to cool on a wire rack.
- Best consumed when slightly warm & fresh, or you can also slice the whole loaf and freeze the slices when they cool fully!
