This recipe is the same as that for Olive oil bread except that I have substituted avocado oil for olive oil and have adapted it for preparation in a Thermomix.

Serving suggestions

This is delicious on its own, no butter needed so very healthy! Good with cheese and salad


You can add other ingredients to it such as herbs, Crushed garlic or dried chilli flakes. Also use different oils such as olive oil, but make sure they have a fairly high smoke point.

Chef's notes

The tin I used to make this bread is made by Falcon, It is an enamel pie dish measuring 24cm and is just right for this bread. These dishes are easy to clean - if anything sticks, just soak in hot water for a short while. They are also very inexpensive.
