Mega Healthy Oat Pearsauce Bread | © 2013 | | © 2013 |

Moist, dense, flavourful breakfast bread made with organic old-fashioned oats, nuts, seeds, cranberry juice, homemade chai pearsauce and lightly sweetened with honey. It's wheat and gluten free, and it's easy to veganize.

  • 150 g Organic rolled oats
  • 140 g Sunflower seeds
  • 85 g Hazelnuts
  • 20 g Ground flax seeds
  • 15 g Psyllium husks
  • 40 g Chia seeds
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 40 g Organic honey
  • 320 g Chai pearsauce
  • 185 ml Organic unsweetened cranberry juice
  1. Whisk together the rolled oats, sunflower seeds, hazelnuts, flax seeds, psyllium husks, chia, cinnamon and salt in a bowl.
  2. Stir honey, pearsauce and cranberry juice together in another mixing bowl. Add in dry mixture and stir until all well blended.
  3. Pour into a standard-size loaf pan lined with parchment paper. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and set aside for an hour.
  4. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Bake the bread in the middle of the hot oven for about 30 minutes. Remove the bread from the loaf pan and place it in a parchment lined baking tray. Return it to the oven and bake for another 30 minutes. Cool the bread on a wire rack for an hour before slicing. | © 2013 | | © 2013 | | © 2013 |
