Delicious Soda Bread

This bread is the easiest to make and delicious to eat.

The recipe uses whole wheat flour, which is good because it contains fiber. The average person only gets about half the recommended amount of fiber each day (30g/day), so we need to increase our intake of high fiber foods like whole grains, beans, fresh vegetables and fruits.

Dietary fiber is fabulous because it helps to keep your bowels healthy, helps you maintain a healthy weight, helps slow the absorption of sugar, and even lower LDL (bad) cholesterol.

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour

1/2 cup of oat flour

2 tablespoons of sunflower seeds

2 tablespoons of pumpkin seeds

2 tablespoons of sesame seeds

1 tablespoon of fennel seeds

2 teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda

1 teaspoon of salt

1 cup of plain full fat yoghurt

1/2 cup of milk

 

Oven temperature 400F

 

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl, make a well in the center. Mix together the yoghurt and milk and pour them into the dry ingredients, stir everything together to a soft dough. You may need to add a little more milk. With your hands, gently bring the dough together.

Put the dough onto a floured baking sheet. Sprinkle some sesame seeds on the top. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes.  When it’s done the loaf should sound hollow when you tap the underneath.

This bread is best on the day you make it, when it is still warm spread with butter and enjoy.
