My dear friend, Kathryn appears on the blog today, with a lovely guest post. I have whipped up this recipe myself, and it really did take me less than 5 minutes to prepare.

THE LIFE CHANGING LOAF OF BREAD
I have been wanting to make this little gem for quite awhile – and with the end of University and a post-wisdom tooth recovery on the horizon I finally had an opportunity!
I was a little hesitant at first as I tend to avoid all grains (it has oats in it), but I let that slide as my curiosity won out.
In fact, I used organic raw rolled oats (which have had less processing in them than regular raw oats), and was informed by the nice man in the health food shop that they are actually quite nutritious.
In terms of effort this is a one bowl wonder that takes about two minutes to whip together.
Definitely let it sit in the tin for at least a couple of hours before you bake it, it make sure it goes nice and dense.
If you can be patient, it really is best to let it sit for a good few hours to cool before you cut it, as it will be crumbly. In fact the next day after some time in the fridge is best.
I have had it with poached eggs and avo, with tahini, peanut butter, cold roast potatoes – really the sky is the limit.
I tried it toasted this morning as well, very very scrummy!
Go – Make It – Enjoy.
