  • I made this yeast free as

    I made this yeast free as well so it didn't rise, if you are going to do this I would suggest you double the amount of ingredients and bake for the 1 1/2 hours. 

    Husband really likes the taste where as I'm not keen, I'm not sure what it is but I fiound it quite tangy in taste.

    very easy to make and loved that there wasn't loads of ingredients.

    I didn't soak the quinoa or chai seeds so I'm not sure if this would made a difference?

    Thanks for the recipe.

    Made these as bread rolls for my MIL over the weekend, she was impressed. Far outweigh the frozen stuff she has been buying and soft/bendable like normal bread. I liked that I wasn't using stuff I didn't already have in the kitchen tmrc_emoticons.) Thanks!!
