About the Recipe

The Recipe for January is an easy, savoury "bake-ahead and freeze" starter or snack for when you have visitors or simply for you to enjoy in lunch boxes for work, school or picnics. All of the dry ingredients are available from The Green Gram


250ml milk

50g soft brown sugar

60ml Greek yoghurt

75g plain flour

75g wholewheat flour

60g cranberries (or other dried fruit of choice)

1tsp bicarbonate of soda

80g rolled oats

60g sunflower seeds or nuts of choice

1⁄2 tsp ground turmeric

1⁄2 tsp cinnamon

1⁄4 tsp nutmeg

1⁄4 tsp dried thyme

1 tsp dried rosemary

1⁄4 tsp salt

1/8 tsp ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 180 degrees centigrade

• Grease and line a small (1lb) loaf tin with baking parchment

• Whisk milk, sugar and yoghurt in a bowl

• In a separate bowl combine the dried ingredients including the fruit before

adding the milk mixture to form a thick batter (similar to muffin batter)

• Scrape into lined tin and bake for 25mins or until a skewer inserted into the

middle comes out clean

• Turn out of tin and cool on a rack then freeze for at least 2 hours or up to 3


• When ready to use, preheat oven to 120 degrees and turn out loaf for

around 20mins so that the surface thaws slightly

• Use a serrated knife to slice thinly (around 2mm), and place slices onto

large baking trays

• Bake for 50 mins or until light brown then leave on the tray to cool and

harden to a snap when broken.

• Store in an airtight container for up to 4 weeks if you can resist!
