Just tried to reply to silme but she has friend only comment turned on. What a stupid setting if you are asking for a recipe. And after I typed the bloody thing in to! So my comment is attached. Hope it is of some use to someone.


Yes, but it is a real pain to make. It is the one in the Sainsbury's special diets cook book. The trick is to wizz the oats in the blender, sift out the fine stuff in a fine sieve, tip the rest back, wizz, sift, repeat for ages until it is all very fine and light and airy.

Oat Bread

500g porridge oats
7g sachet of easy blend yeast
1 & half teaspoon salt
1 table spoon raw cane sugar or 1 desert spoon of fructose
400 ml warm water
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Makes 2 x 500g loaves

Preheat oven Gas 4 / 180 C / 350 F

Process the oats in food processor until consistency of flour.

Put in bowl with yeast, salt, and sugar or fructose, then stir in water and oil.

Beat hard by hand or mixer for at least 5 minutes.

Spoon into two well greased 500g (1 lb) loaf tins, cover and leave in a warm place for 30 minutes.

Bake for 1 hour and then turn the loaves out of the tins and leave to cool on a wire rack.
