It’s the weekend. Can’t be arsed with kneading dough for 10 minutes but still want a freshly baked vehicle for your butter / gooey egg / cheese?
Step right up: OAT LOAF. Made of the simple things in life: oats, and yogurt.
Also: technically oats are gluten free. Buy a package which states gluten free, and use gluten free baking soda to fully ensure the gluten free-ness.
500 ml natural yogurt
2 tspns baking soda
1 tspn salt
2 tblspns olive oil
Preheat oven to 180ish C
When you’re measuring out ingredients increase the effortless level and use the 500ml yogurt tub to measure out 2 tubs of oats. None of this weighing malarkey. I toasted the garlic in the olive oil first, and but you can skip if you want. Add whatever herbs or seeds you prefer.
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl
Mix wet ingredients in a bowl
Add wet to dry and mix, in a lazy weekend fashion
Turn out into your loaf pan (I used a ceramic dish and lined it with baking paper)
Bake in the oven for 45 minutes. For the last 10 minutes, remove the loaf from the tin/dish and turn it upside down.
Let it sit for about 10 minutes when it comes out of the oven: then you’ll be able to peel off the paper effortlessly, or take it out of it’s tin without sticking.
Slather on your favourite toppings: avocado, gooey egg, goats cheese
Oat loaf lazy oaf level: achieved.
