How to make Tuna Oat-Bread

Updated on February 3, 2014

What is it?

One day, messing around and trying new recipes, I came up with something called a "Tuna Oat-Bread". It's essentially made out of very cheap ingredients that you wouldn't normally mix, which combine together perfectly to form a meal rich in carbs, protein and healthy fats.

This is perfect to have for lunch or dinner after a workout due to the high amount of protein and carbohydrates.

Utensils needed

  • A spoon
  • A small bowl
  • A butter-knife
  • A flat container (e.g, the lid of a container)

Ingredients

  • 45g Steel cut oats
  • 60ml Milk
  • 60g Tuna
  • 40g Feta Cheese, crumbled
  • 20g Mixed raw nuts, chopped
Steel cut oats (unsalted and unsweetened -- completely natural) are best for this recipe.

Instructions

  1. Mix the tuna, feta cheese and chopped raw nuts into the bowl. Mix it well so it comes together and has texture, but not so much so it becomes a paste.
  2. Put 45g of [steel cut] oats into the flat container, and pour the 60g of milk and mix. Once mixed drain the excess milk -- you can choose to drink it.
  3. Put the flat container with the oats into the microwave and microwave them for about 2-3 minutes, depending on the thickness of the mixture of oats. When you take it out it should have hardened, like bread, but soft enough to bend.
  4. Take the now oat-bread out of the container and place in on a plate. Then, spread the tuna mix onto the oat-bread with a butter-knife.
  5. You can then choose to either bend one side of the bread to form a wrap or just leave it as a one-piece sandwich.

What can I eat it with?

I'd suggest pairing this with a side-salad and a piece of fruit. I like it with a tomato and cucumber salad, and a banana.

Tuna, cheese, nuts and oats are things not many would consider eating together -- it definitely sounds strange. However, the taste is amazing and the meal has a good ratio of protein, fats, carbs and dairy.

It's incredibly healthy and a great portion size. Enjoy!
