Oats are high in a type of fibre called beta glucan which helps to lower cholesterol and improve blood sugar control. The yogurt and sesame seeds also provide additional calcium for healthy bones. Don’t be put off by the ingredients list, this bread is so moist and yummy, you won’t want to go back to ordinary bread, especially when you realise just how quick and easy it is to make.



300g Oats

500g Natural Yoghurt (Choose whole milk yoghurt over low fat)

2 teaspoons Bread Soda

2 Tbsp of sesame seeds

Pinch of salt


  1. Set your oven to 175C.
  2. Place the oats, seeds, salt and bread soda into a large bowl. Pour over the yogurt and mix the ingredients together really well. Grease a 2lb loaf tin and pour the mixture evenly into the tin. The mixture should take up about three quarters of the volume of the tin. Smooth over the top with the back of a spoon to ensure the top is nice and even. Bake in the oven for approximately 50 minutes
  3. Use a skewer to check it’s cooked through. If you feel it’s going quite brown on top, then just cover with a little tin foil for the last 10 minutes.
  4. Once baked, make sure to leave it to cool in the tin for at least 10 minutes and then remove to wire rack to cool completely.


There are lots of additions you can add to this recipe including cinnamon, mixed spice, mixed seeds/nuts, black olives or rosemary to name but a few. Experiment with whatever tickles your fancy.
