This recipe was shared by another Self-Care bootcamper and it’s her family’s own recipe, it’s yummy!


220g (8oz) gluten free wholemeal flour

180g (6oz) Flahavans multi seed oats (or regular oats)

1 beaten egg

3-4 desert spoons organic natural yoghurt

Organic whole milk*

1 heaped teaspoon baking powder

1 level teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

Sesame seeds


Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. In a pint jug add egg, yogurt and make up the rest with milk to 1 pint.

Mix in the wet ingredients (should be quite moist)

Put the mixture into a greased loaf tin and cut a cross in the top (1 inch deep). Sprinkle sesame seeds on top. Place into a preheated oven at 160 degrees and cook for 40 minutes. Then turn the bread and cook for a further 15 minutes or until a hollow sound comes from the base when you tap it.

Cool on a wire rack.
