That Scandinavian Loaf

First of all just a wee whisper that Priscilla is in hospital now and her baby is being gently induced. There are still quite some hours to go but I'll let you know as soon as he arrives. Thanks to you all for your love and strength.

Hot on the heels of reading this post from Rose yesterday I nipped down to the shops to buy some psyllium husks and some sunflower seeds as I already had all the other ingredients...

It's dense and chewy and very nutritious and just what I have been looking for.

This is what I used yesterday and as the original recipe states there are endless possibilities for changes...

1 1/2 cups of rolled oats(not instant)
1 cup of sunflower seeds
1/2 cup of pecan nuts
1/2 cup of LSA
4 T psyllium husks, powdered
3 T coconut oil, melted
1 1/2 cups of water
1 T honey and 1 t of salt

I baked it for 50-55 minutes at 180C

I've had a slice toasted and Joe has had the crust as is, it's not too sweet but I think I'll use just a little more salt next time.

Crazy hat for cold Hippy Momma
It's very cold here today with 3C expected as the over night minimum, I have a new pile of library books and an urgent "order" for warm hats so I'm busy in the sunny living room while keeping an eye on Facebook for Priss's messages...what a modern world when can get messages from the Maternity Ward 12,000 miles away!

Talk to you soon,
Love from Nana Sue


  1. I really must try that loaf, Sue. I saw it on Rose's blog too so it is probably going to be popular.

    I am praying for a safe delivery for Liam and for good progress for Priss in the coming months.

  2. Sue your loaf is much prettier than mine! I'm so glad it turned out well for you. I think I'll add more salt next time too, I'm also going to play with the chia seeds and water which I'll post about.

  3. This recipe sounds delicious I must give it a try xx

  4. I MUST make that! Rose's post has been on my mind and now yours is really prodding me, LOL!

    So incredibly excited for Liam's arrival - I feel it's MY Grandchild coming... *squeal*

  5. The loaf looks great. I have never made something like it. It's healthy. Let us know about the baby. Praying for all to go well with your daughter and baby.

  6. Look forward to hear about Priscilla and her baby. The loaf looks great - I've never tried anything like that before...
