Bfree Oaty Loaf – Review

 

Finding a good gluten free bread can be a huge challenge but finding a good gluten free vegan bread is a very limited market. We are big fans of Bfree in our house we use there brown bloomer everyday and we always love the wraps for our quesadillas. So when I heard Bfree were releasing a new Oaty loaf I was very excited. When the loaves arrived I couldn’t wait to try them out and already was coming up with recipes.

We both jumped straight in the next morning and went for toast as this always our breakfast every day so it was a nice change to the normal brown bfree bloomer. The bread pasted the taste test with Little Duck who said “it was delicious with her bees (honey for those who need toddler translation) “. I went for a jam option and found the bread to be thick really chewy (which is really unusual in a gluten free bread as they tend to be very thin and quite dry) it also had an amazing sour dough taste which really impressed me.

Now for the info on all the goodness of the bread. The oaty loaf is a soda type loaf but contains none of the normal buttermilk or any dairy and is free from soya, nuts and yeast so great for anyone struggling with allergies. Its made with gluten free oats so this may be something of an issue for some coeliac’s I can tolerate small amounts so this is a treat for me. Every two slices of the oaty loaf provides you with the same amount of goodness as a bowl of porridge, I dunno about you but I am definitely not a porridge fan so this is a great way to get some added fibre.

Suggestions from the Bfree Website

 

Whenever we find a new product I always like to try and create something new so I have come up with a great summery dish that is great to prep in advance to. I have created both a meat and a vegan version so plenty for everyone:

 

Ingredients – Chicken Goujons

1 Servings of my houmous recipe follow link for details

1 pieces of Bfree Oaty Loaf

3 chicken breasts, sliced into strips

salt and pepper

 

1. Blitz the 3 pieces of Oaty loaf in a food processor into a fine crumb and transfer to a bowl.

 

2.  Add sliced chicken to the bowl of houmous and stir so as to coat all the pieces.

3. Dip Chicken in breadcrumbs and roll to coat evenly, then transfer to a tray. Alternatively put in the fridge for later (use within a day)

 

 

4. Bake in the oven at 180C/ Gas Mark 4/ 350F for 25 minutes turning half way or until golden and crisp on the outside.

 

This recipe works great with chicken but if you fancy a more vegan approach i have made it with cauliflower also:

I like to serve both options with a rice salad or wedges, these are a firm family favourite and the Oaty loaf adds a really great flavour to the goujons.
