Bird seed loaf

While I like to think that the recipes on this blog are “my own”, rarely is this truly the case.  Recipes travel like all good ideas – and as they do so they are moulded, shaped and altered to suit the needs of the user.   Like most cooks, I get ideas from other recipes and dishes sampled, then I add my spin to it.  This recipe has none of “my spin”  however – it comes directly from my favourite food blog “Not quite Nigella”!  With no wheat, eggs or dairy, it also can be used almost universally – always a bonus in this increasingly food conscious world.  Above all, it is absolutely delicious.  Serve as is or toasted, with anything you would normally have with bread,  Thanks Not quite Nigella – this is now a staple in my household!

Time to make: 25 minutes preparation + 35 minutes cooking
1 medium loaf

What you need
1 ½ cups wholegrain oats
½ cup pumpkin seeds
½ cup sunflower seeds
½ cup linseeds
½ cup whole almonds or hazelnuts
½ cups sesame seeds
2 tablespoons chia seeds
4 tablespoons psyllium husks
1 teaspoon salt
1 ½ cups water
1 tablespoon honey
3 tablespoons coconut oil

    Looking forward to making this loaf as it look so yum but struggling to get psyllium husks can you help me with where to buy them? Also coconut oil. Hope you are well and still loving your recipes. Cheers Rachel
