  • 240ml dairy free milk (I used soya)
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 250g Gluten Free Bread flour (brown or white - I used Dove's Farm)
  • 2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 45g Gluten Free Oat flour (or blend oats till they resemble flour)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Handful of Gluten Free oats for decoration


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas Mark 6 and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

  2. In a small bowl or jug, mix together the milk and vinegar. Leave to curdle to form the 'buttermilk'.

  3. In another bowl, mix together the flours, bicarb and salt. Make a well in the middle and pour in the wet ingredients.

  4. Mix till just combined, the dough will be a little sticky. Place the dough on your lined baking tray and shape into a vague ball with floured hands. Sprinkle on the gluten free oats and make cross with a sharp knife.

  5. Bake for 35 mins, until it sounds hollow when tapped on the base. Cool on a wire rack and best eaten on the day but any leftovers make delicious toast the next morning!

Many people are intolerant of oats. They containa protein similar to gluten called avenin and this may be the problem. Alternatively, oats may have been harvested from a field which once grew wheat or barley, maybe even rye and these lingering "rogue" grains may have joined the oats. Finally, the oats or oatmeal may have been milled in a mill which was not cleaned between milling a gluten containing crop and the oats. All-in-all, it is not wise to recommend oats to coeliacs or folk intolerant of gluten. This recipe may be fine for vegans but gluten averse people should know precisely whether thier oats/oatmeal are truly gluten free and be sure they are not sensitive to avenin.
