Served with Labneh

This bread really is life changing, especially for those loosely following a paleo kinda diet. Im actually not much of a bread girl, but this is totally delicious toasted with a smear of 100% peanut butter for a yummy nutritious and filling snack. I’ve made a few changes to the recipe, as the original has sunflower seeds and Linseeds, which I’m not particularly fond of. You can find he original source of the recipe and all her tips here http://www.mynewroots.org/site/2013/02/the-life-changing-loaf-of-bread/

  • 1 ½ cups rolled oats
  • 2 Tbsp. chia seeds
  • 3 Tbsp psyllium husk powder
  • 1 tsp. fine grain sea salt

Directions:
1. Grease and line a cermaic or glass loaf tin. Combine all dry ingredients in a separate bowl, stirring well. Whisk maple syrup, oil and water together in a measuring cup. Add this to the dry ingredients and mix very well until everything is completely soaked and dough becomes very thick (if the dough is too thick to stir, add one or two teaspoons of water until the dough is manageable). Pour into dish and smooth out the top with the back of a spoon. Let sit out on the counter for at least 2 hours, or all day or overnight.
2. Preheat oven to 175°C.
3. Place loaf pan in the oven on the middle rack, and bake for 20-30 minutes. Remove bread from loaf pan, place it upside down directly on the rack and bake for another 30-40 minutes. Bread is done when it sounds hollow when tapped. Let cool completely before slicing (difficult, but important).
4. Store bread in a tightly sealed container for up to five days. Freezes well too – slice before freezing for quick and easy toast!

Suggestions:

  • Original recipe calls for it to be baked in a silicon loaf tray, however I prefer glass and ceramic for health reasons. Just be extra careful to grease so it removes easily. 
  • Add chopped dried fruit for a sweet bread.
