Sorry to hear that - you can always add salt as a personal preference!

Hi there, thanks for your message! If you're using plain porridge, I would use 200g of porridge oats and 200g of mixed seeds/nuts to make the same ratio as Bio & Me! I hope this helps and you enjoy the loaf!

Thank you for your lovely message! I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed the recipe and were able to adapt it to the ingredients you had. Having it with hummus and avocado sounds delicious!

This is a stunning loaf. I didn't have sift dried figs, so soaked some of my hard dried figs; used just rolled oats (no nutty/seedy porridge) and used macadamia oil. After cooking, cooling & slicing, I froze half and am still eating this. My favourite is with my hummus and/or avocado topped with my dukkah. Thank you. Your newsletter us such an inspiration for me.

This looks fantastic! Will make it tomorrow. (I live in the USA)

A bit confused by the ingredient list… If not using the Bio&Me porridge, are you meant to use 400g of plain porridge + 400g of the mixed seeds/nuts listed? Just done that and despite using 6 eggs with the 800g of dry ingredients, it doesn’t look wet enough to hold together. I’ve added a few more eggs and olive oil… let’s see how it all comes out but it would be lovely to have some clarification about the alternative use of porridge/ nuts & seeds and if the mix of eggs and porridge is meant to look wet or not. Thanks in advance and thanks for putting the ‘gut’ word out there. ;-)

This is delicious! Making for the second time and have added cranberries instead of figs, so looking forward to trying it when it comes out of the oven.

This makes TWO loaves but there's no salt, so not particularly tasty although interesting texture.

I made this last night and had it for breakfast this morning. It’s a dense full of flavour bread! I have sliced it and put it in the freezer for the rest of the week. Delicious 😊☕️
