How to make the no-carb bread
1 Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Prepare two 14 cm loaf tins or one 28 cm loaf tin with baking paper.
2 Heat the olive oil in a pan and wilt the baby spinach for just a few seconds. Remove from heat and strain into a sieve or colander. Leave to cool before squeezing out the excess water.
3 Finely chop the spinach and add salt, pepper, oregano and Pesto Princess Greek Pesto and mix to combine.
4 Combine the almond flour, psyllium husk, whole and ground seeds, baking powder, salt and feta in a mixing bowl.
5 Add the eggs and yoghurt to the dry ingredients and mix to combine. Finally, add the spinach mixture and stir thoroughly.
6 Spoon the mix into the prepared tins, top with a handful of seeds and bake for 55-60 minutes until golden and cooked through.
