Notes: * Check Coeliac UK's Food and Drink Information for suitable products


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Line or grease a loaf tin (a 2lb loaf tin is ideal)
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the greek yogurt, vegetable oil, honey, egg and oat milk, mix well. Add the oats once mixed and leave to soak for a few minutes. 
  3. In a separate bowl add the flour, xanthum gum and baking powder. Once combined, add this into the wet mixture and mix until smooth. (Do not over mix as it will make the bread tough.) The mixture should resemble a thick cake batter, rather than a dough.  
  4. Add the mixture to your lined loaf tin and smooth out the mixture evenly across the tin. Sprinkle the remaining 2 tbsp gluten free oats on top.  
  5. Bake in the centre of the oven for 40-45 minutes until the middle is fully cooked and the top is a light golden brown. 
  6. Remove from the oven once cooked. Before moving the loaf to a wire rack, brush the leftover honey on the top and sides to glaze the loaf.  
  7. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and leave it until it’s completely cool before slicing and serving 

Hints and tips:

This bread can be frozen. Simply, slice the loaf and add a piece of baking paper between each slice before adding them to a freezer safe container. (Can be frozen for up to 3 months)
