WellNow Porridge Bread ingredients

This recipe is bread gold! It is such a filling and healthy go-to for any meal or snack. It’s easy to make and tastes fab. If you are avoiding gluten just use gluten-free oats.


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C / 350°F / Gas Mark 4.
  2. Grease standard loaf tin (2lbs/900g - 18.5 x 11.5 x 9cm) or use loaf tin liners which are amazing!
  3. Mix the yoghurt and egg in a large bowl.
  4. Add the porridge oats, bicarbonate of soda, salt & ground chia seeds (if using) and mix well.
  5. Put the mixture in the lined loaf tin.
  6. Place in the oven and cook for about 35-45 mins before taking out and turning upside down, placing back in the tin. Cook for a further 10 mins.
  7. Cool on a wire rack.


Note: Double the recipe for two loaves and slice the second loaf once it has fully cooled and place in a freezer bag and freeze.  It’s the bread that keeps on giving!
