I am so excited to share this amazing recipe with you! Without even exaggerating – it’s one of the best (if not the number one) food related discoveries I have ever made! It´s certainly changed my diet completly – I’ve hardly touched real bread since (and haven’t wanted to!). It’s just delicious, and best of all – it’s so good for you! Packed with goodness using whole grains, nuts, and seeds; it’s also super high in protein, rich in fiber, gluten-free and vegan. The best thing about it? It´s SO easy to make!
Makes one loaf
2 cups of water, 2 cups of pumpkin seeds, 3 tbsp of Chia seeds , 1 cup of almonds, 1/2 cup of sunflower seeds , 1 cup buckwheat flour, 3-4 tbsp of psyllium husk powder (this is an essential ingredient as it´s what binds the bread together!) & salt to taste
Blend the almonds and 1 cup of pumpkin seeds in a food processor or blender, mix until the you reach a flour consistency. Pour this over into a bowl and stir in the pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, buckwheat flour, psyllium husk and salt. Thoroughly mix this together and gradually pour in the water until you reach a sticky and firm mixture. Leave the mixture for a few hours to absorb the water. Grease a loaf tin with coconut oil and pour the mix in, place the bread in the oven and bake for 45-55 minutes on 180C (until you´ve reached a nice golden top). Once it´s cooled down, we like to slice half of the loaf in and pop the slices it in the freezer (it makes perfect toast) and the remaining we put it in the fridge, which will last you a good week!
My classic is serving it toasted with some tahini spread, mashed avocado, sprinkled with lemon, salt and chilli. I also have it when I’m on the go with some almond butter, and in the weekend I serve it with scrambled or poached eggs (the list goes on)…
ENJOY! I would love to hear what you think of it, if and once you’ve made it – to see if it works wonders for you as well!
