A very easy healthy bread to make.  It goes well with acidic dishes to balance out the flavours, beautifully on a cheeseboard with blue cheese, or just a spread of butter.  This recipe has been adapted from Kate Abbott from Clifton Kitchen.

Before you start, you should get your electric mixer and another bowl ready.  One for the dry ingredients (Bowl A) and one for the wet ingredients (Bowl B).  Also grease a 1lt bread tin with butter and a dusting of flour or lined with baking paper.

  • Ingredients A
  • 250g whole wheat flour
  • 100g oats
  • 40g shelled sunflower seeds

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp sea salt
