a bread that changes your life...??? can a bread change a life...???

i mean it is amazing that food blogger sarah britton's recipe of this super healthy and delicious bread spread out so quickly and that there is hardly anyone around the net, who did not try her yummy recipe.

...same here...i thought i have to try it myself...i always used to make my own bread and became curious...i got all the needed ingredients (some of them require a little bit of effort to get)...and...because i did not do it straight away, i somehow forgot about it. i recently discovered that my body isn't able to cope with gluten anymore, this bread came into my mind again and i finally gave it go.

this is the first bread i had in months (i wasn't really into trying any gluten-free bread before) somehow it did change my life...i am back in the bread baking community...hallelujah...!!!

..this bread contains a lot healthy...really nutty, delicious, soft, chewy and easy to make...i am in love.

as this one was my first attempt, i followed the original recipe to be on the save side...but i am pretty much sure you can vary the ingredients as long as you use psyllium husk and chia seeds .

if you have not tried this recipe yet and i can highly recommend to do regards...silke

this is what you need

- 1 cup sunflower seeds

- 1/2 cup flax seed

- 1/2 cup hazelnuts or almonds

- 1 1/2 cups rolled oats

- 2 tablespoons chia seeds

- 3 tablespoons psyllium husk powder

- 1 teaspoon sea salt (i will use 1 tablespoon next time)

- 1 tablespoon maple syrup (i had to use honey this time)

- 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil

- 1 1/2 cups water

this is what you have to do

- mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl

- combine melted coconut oil, maple syrup and water in a separate bowl

- pour the mixture over the dry ingredients and stir everything thoroughly until completelty soaked

- the dough should be quite thick

- if too thick add some more water and stir in well

- pour the dough into a small greased loaf pan

- let sit for at least two hours at room temperature

- it can be easily rest overnight

- preheat oven to 350 degree fahrenheit

- bake for 20 minutes

- remove the bread loaf from the pan

- place onto the rack

- bake for another 30-40 minutes

- the bread is readily baked when it sounds hallow

- let cool completely before slicing

- enjoy

- it stays soft and chewing up to five days

please check out for the original recipe and further information about the nutrition of the bread.

i hope you enjoy this bread as much as i do, even though it might not really change your life...thanks for stopping regards...silke
