This is the perfect emergency bread which is healthy, very soft inside with a crunchy crust and particularly kids friendly. My kids couldn’t stop eating it, that’s how much they were loving it!

And because this particular bread was born from an emergency situation, you can stay reassured that it’s the perfect quick fix as a family bread to accompany any meal or simply as an after school snack or even better as part of your kid’s lunch box. So versatile yet very quick and easy to prepare!

I call it Mediterranean bread as it contains very peculiar Mediterranean diet plant-based ingredients like olives, capers, sun-dried tomatoes, oregano and extra virgin olive oil.

These are all very popular elements in the Italian cuisine and represent a great healthy addition to this nutrients packed bread.

The kids couldn’t stop eating this bread!

Crunchy and tasty nutrient packed Mediterranean bread.

An easy and quick bread recipe full of flavour and goodness.

Ingredients for a small loaf
  • 1 cup self raising flour/ any self raising gluten - free works too!
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons of capers
  • 2 tablespoons of sun-dried tomatoes 
  • 3 tablespoons of green olives
  • 2 teaspoons of mixed seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of Philadelphia cheese
  • 1 teaspoon of oregano
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pink Himalayan salt
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. If you prefer you can chop the olives too. I didn’t do it because my kids love olives so I didn’t need to disguise them!

Pour the dough in a rectangular silicon mould previously brushed with some oil to prevent the sticking.

Cook in a preheated oven for 20/25 minutes at 180 degrees and voila!
