  • 375g Loprofin Mix
  • 2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 15g psyllium husk
  • 20g soft brown sugar or honey.
  • 250mls Sno-Pro
  • 1 ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 50g olive oil
  • (extra for brushing the top)
  • 1 Weetabix


  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C.
  2. Mix the psyllium husk and ¾ of the Weetabix (save the other ¼ for the top) with the Sno-Pro and allow to thicken for 10 minutes.
  3. Mix the Loprofin Mix, salt, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder in a bowl. Stir in the olive oil.
  4. Add the Sno-Pro mixture and lemon juice. Mix until you have a soft dough.
  5. Dust a worktop with Loprofin Mix, tip out the dough and mould into a smooth ball.
  6. Place on a lined baking sheet and flatten with the palm of your hand slightly.
  7. With a sharp knife cut a cross on the top of the dough, brush with olive oil and sprinkle with the remaining crushed Weetabix.
  8. Bake for 25–30 minutes. It should be golden brown and when you tap the bottom of the bread it should sound hollow. Allow to cool on a wire rack.
