This has got to be one of the yummiest and easiest healthy breads I’ve ever made. It’s loaded with beneficial healthy fats, carbs and proteins. I especially love it because it contains Flaxseeds and Oats which are galactagogues and promote breast milk production. So if you’re a breast feeding mumma this one is also perfect for you!
The recipe takes about 5-10minutes to mix up and then you just need to bake. Store it in the fridge or freezer. A great breakfast, snack or side to one of my healthy soups. So no excuses to eat healthy!
Credit goes to my brother Brett for this recipe, the legend flew over from Melbourne and made me two loafs soon after Henry was born. Since then I’ve made it weekly! Who else loves healthy food gifts after the birth of a child?
