In a mixing bowl combine the Glenisk yogurt, egg, milk and bicarbonate of soda.
Stir in the oats, salt and cup of mixed nuts and seeds (if you so wish).
Ensure all ingredients are well blended into a doughy texture and then transfer mixture to loaf tin.
Cut a line down the centre of your loaf and sprinkle with a few nuts and seeds.
