The Life Changing Loaf of Bread

The Life Changing Loaf of Bread

A delicious, easy bread that is wheat free, dairy free and full of protein!

 

I found this recipe yesterday when I was having an adjustment at my lovely Chiropractors!  I don’t generally eat bread, but every now and then I like the idea of having a full bodied, dense, satisfying piece.

Being a busy mum I am always a fan of easy recipes and this one is bizarrely simple, basically you just throw all the ingredients in a bowl and mix.  The source of the recipe is : www.mynewroots.org.  After I had a wonderful  chiropractic adjustment I raced home to see if it really could be as easy as it looks. It was! I think it is also quite life changing as I now have a recipe I can throw together for a hearty meal to have with a soup!

 

Ingredients

1 cup (135g) sunflower seeds

1/2 cup (90g) flaxseeds

1/2 cup (65g) hazelnuts or almonds

1 1/2 cups (145g) rolled oats

2 Tbs chia seeds

4 Tbs pysllium seeds husks (3 Tbs if using psyllium husk powder)

1 tsp fine grain sea salt

1 Tbs maple syrup

3 Tbs melted coconut oil or ghee

1 1/2 cups (350ml) water

 

Directions

Preheat oven to 175 degree C.

Combine all dry  ingredients, stir well.

Whisk water, maple syrup and oil together.

Mix wet and dry ingredients, mix very well until everything is completely soaked and dough becomes very thick (if dough is too thick to stir, add one or two teaspoonsof water until dough is manageable.

Put into a loaf tin lined well with baking paper. Smooth top with the back of a spoon.

Let loaf sit on the counter for at least 2 hours or overnight. To ensure the dough is ready it should retain its shape when you pull on the baking paper.

Place loaf in the oven on the middle rack and bake for 20 minutes.  Then remove the bread from the loaf tin, place it upside down directly on the rack and bake for another 30-40 minutes. the bread is done when it sounds hollow when tapped.

Allow the bread to cool completely before slicing.

Store bread in a well sealed container for up to five days. this loaf can also be sliced and then frozen.

ENJOY!
