Seedy Grain-Free Bread

Uncategorized Jan 21, 2021
Looking for a yummy, gluten-free bread to nibble on...that doesn't taste like cardboard, lol? This is a bit nice! It's also grain-free, so a good choice if you're sensitive or needing to limit your grain intake at the moment.
 
By the way...if your bread turns GREEN after a day or two - do not fear, it is not mould! This is just a normal reaction that happens with the ground up sunflower seeds. If the colour puts you off the bread, you might want to sub sunflower seeds for a different type of seed.
 
INGREDIENTS
  • 1½ cup almond meal
  • 6 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 6 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 4 tbsp chia seeds
  • 3 tbsp flax seeds
  • 1/3 cup almonds
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3 eggs
  • ¾ cup almond milk
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Mix the pumpkin, sunflower, flax and chia seeds in a bowl, set aside 3 tablespoons.
  3. Place the almonds in a food processor and pulse a few times.
  4. Add the remaining seeds and pulse until coarsely ground.
  5. Add the almond meal, coconut flour and baking soda and pulse until combined.
  6. Add the eggs, almond milk, olive oil, honey, vinegar and ½ teaspoon of salt and process until well combined.
  7. Allow the batter to rest for about 5 minutes to ensure the moisture is absorbed by the coconut flour.
  8. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
  9. Pour the mixture into the pan and smooth it out with a spatula, then sprinkle with the reserved mixed seeds.
  10. Bake for 45 – 50 minutes, or until the bread is golden-brown and a metal skewer or knife inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  11. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
  12. Remove the bread from pan.
  13. Wrap the cooled bread in a clean tea towel, or place it in a container and store in refrigerator for up to 5 days. You could also slice the bread up and store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
