How to make Tuna Oat-Bread
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.
- A spoon
- A small bowl
- A butter-knife
- A flat container (e.g, the lid of a container)
- 45g Steel cut oats
- 60ml Milk
- 60g Tuna
- 40g Feta Cheese, crumbled
- 20g Mixed raw nuts, chopped
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
