Gluten free Cottage Cheese and Oats Bread

Hello my lovelies! apologies for being absent – life's been hectic, but in the best possible way. My son Erez is back after living overseas for five years, and all four of my boys are here in Oz, and I'm bursting with joy. With Passover on Monday, our family Seder is going to be the BEST – there is only 45 of us gathering around the table! And on that note I’d like to wish those who celebrate the festival.  Chag Samech and apologies for those who can’t make this bread for another week but I promise it’s worth the wait.

Now, let's talk bread, Not just any bread, mind you. We're diving into the realm of homemade goodness with a loaf that'll make even your kale smoothie green with envy. And guess what? It's as easy as pie (or should I say, loaf).

The only kitchen gadgets you need is a mixing bowl and a spoon. As for the ingredients:  Cottage cheese, oats, eggs, seeds and some fresh herbs for extra flavour. Yep, you heard that right. We're about to turn these humble ingredients into a loaf of bread that's falvourful, filling and healing.

Step one: combine all your ingredients in a bowl. Don't worry if it looks like something your grandma might feed her pet rabbit – trust me, it's about to become a family favourite.

Pop that bad boy into the oven and let the magic happen. As the scent of freshly baked bread wafts through your kitchen, you'll feel like a culinary wizard – and rightly so. You've just created something truly special, something that's not just food for your body, but food for your soul.

So, there you have it, folks. A recipe for bread that's as easy to make as it is to devour. Go forth, my fellow bread enthusiasts, and spread the joy – and maybe a little butter – with every slice. And remember, when life gives you cottage cheese, oats, and seeds, make bread.



The addition of fresh herbs enhances the flavour of this bakery delight. You can opt for basil, dill, or any preferred variety to suit your taste.

Whether you use onion salt, plain salt, or garlic salt or any other variety, the choice is up to your taste buds.

I encourage you to explore using a variety of seeds.

I used Cole’s brand cottage cheese due to its lower moisture content compared to other brands. Substituting it with an alternative brand may require additional baking time to avoid moisture retention in the centre.


  • 500g cottage cheese

  • 3 large eggs

  • 1 teaspoon onion salt

  • Handful of finely chopped parsley

  • Finely chopped chives, to taste

  • 3 cups oats

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 3/4 cup mixed seeds (I used sesame, Nigella, pumpkin, and sunflower seeds)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

  2. Grease a loaf tin with oil and line it with baking paper.

  3. In a mixing bowl, combine cottage cheese, salt, and herbs..

  4. Add three eggs, oats, baking powder, and seeds to the mixture, and combine thoroughly.

  5. Transfer the mixture into the prepared loaf tin.

  6. Bake for approximately 60 minutes, or until the bread achieves a golden-brown hue and a toothpick inserted into the centre emerges clean.

  7. Allow the bread to cool in the tin before slicing and serving.
