Recipe: Delicious Dairy Free Brown Bread

I was searching for a recipe for dairy free brown bread and was finding it a difficult task I posted on the allergy section of A very helpful rollercoaster-er replied back to me with this  lovely recipe. I finally got a chance to try it out today and it didn’t disappoint. It is very easy and there were lots of steps which my four year old could help with.



425g brown/ wholemeal flour

40g sesame seeds

40g sunflower seeds

40g pumpkin seeds

15g poppy seeds

15g linseeds

2tsp baking powder

1tsp salt (optional)

550ml water

1tbsp treacle

What to do:

1. Preheat the oven to 180C (170C for fan).

2. Sift flour & baking powder, mix in all seeds.

3. In a jug combine the water & treacle – mix this together as much as possible. Pour into a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and fold in. The mixture should be quite sloppy.


4. Transfer to a greased 2lb loaf tin and bake for 60 minutes (It only took 50 minutes in my fan oven).

5.  Allow to cool on a wire rack.


It tasted delicious still warm from the oven spread with butter. I found it very heavy and filling but delicious. My older boy is a fan too.
