  • 250 grams plain white flour
  • 200 grams wholemeal flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 apples peeled and diced
  • 50 grams walnuts roughly chopped
  • 350 millilitres plant based milk soy or oat milk works best
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice or apple cider vinegar
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 200C/400F/gas 6.

  2. Add the lemon juice (or apple cider vinegar) to the plant milk and place to one side.

  3. Sift the flours into a large mixing bowl with the bicarbonate soda and salt.

  4. Add the diced apple and walnut pieces and toss them in the flour to ensure they are evenly distributed and coated in the flour.

  5. Slowly pour in the milk and bring the ingredients together into a rough dough - it shouldn't be too sticky or wet so don't add the liquids all at once.

  6. Lightly flour a baking tray and sprinkle over half of the oats.

  7. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and share it into a neat round boule roughly 18-20cm in diameter.

  8. Place it onto the baking tray and make a cross in the top of the loaf and sprinkle over the remaining oats.

  9. Bake in the centre of the oven for 35 minutes then turn the bread upside down and bake for another 10 minutes.

  10. Leave the bread to cool on a wire rack covered in a clean tea towel.
