About this recipe: This is something that I experimented with as I was looking for a bread that was slightly more GI friendly than normal bread. I still like a slight amount of white bread flour to add a bit of lightness and spring to this very tasty loaf.

  1. Place all dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix well.
  2. Place all wet ingredients into a seperate bowl and mix well.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix, either with a spoon or with your hands. Bring the mixture together with your hands to form a dough.
  4. Tip the dough out on to a floured surface and knead for 10 minutes. Put the dough back into the bowl and cover with cling film. Leave in a warm place for an hour to rise.
  5. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
  6. Knock back the dough, and form into your required shape, place on a baking tray.
  7. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, take out of the oven and turn over, put back in the oven and bake for a further 10 minutes.
  8. To test if the loaf is ready, tap the base lightly, it should sound hollow. Leave on a rack to cool.


Freeze any leftovers or crusts in a bag to make breadcrumbs at a later date.
