Why should you make them?

The answer is in the title. They are easy and tasty. Your only job is to dump the ingredients in a bowl and stir until they are combined. No need to knead or proof. The baking soda is activated in the yogurt and you can bake them right after you’ve combined all the ingredients.

There is whole wheat flour in the ingredients, which makes them higher in nutrients. Whole wheat flour can provide you with more fiber and B vitamins than all-purpose flour.

The easy soda bread rolls with olives and feta are also suitable for kids and could be packed in a lunch box.

Helpful tips

Make sure that the baking soda you use is fresh. If it is old your bread will turn out flat.

Crumble your own feta. Buy the feta on a block and use a fork or your fingers to crumble it. I don’t recommend using already crumbled feta, because it contains starches and anti-caking agents.

The dough is very sticky, and I use an ice cream scoop to form the bead rolls. If you decide to use your hands for shaping them, you have to oil your palms first with some olive oil.

Store leftovers in the fridge. I don’t recommend keeping any leftover bread rolls on the countertop. They contain feta witch spoils easily. For best taste reheat them after you removed them from the refrigerator.
