Multi-Seed Bread

2 Comments

There’s a recipe floating out there for a coconut flax bread, which I believe originated from Tropical Traditions. It is indeed delicious, but my tummy? Cannot handle that much flax seed. I feel uncomfortably full for most of the day afterwards, & that’s just not a fun state to be in. But, it being a rather delicious bread made with 100% Real Food ingredients, I really wanted to turn this into a bread I could enjoy.

Enter: the Chia seed.

Chia seeds are, believe it or not, the same thing from the “Chi-chi-chi-CHIA!” commercials! They’re completely edible & rather interesting – they form a sort of gel & are chock full of protein, fiber, & good fats.

Multi-Seed Bread

gluten-free, high-fiber

What you need:

  • 1 cup coconut flour, sifted
  • 1/2 cup flax meal
  • 1/4 cup chia seed + 1/4 cup water, set aside to gel
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar

 

How to do it:

  1. Preheat oven to 325°
  2. Mix together dry ingredients, adding chia gel.
  3. Add wet ingredients, mixing well.
  4. Grease a baking pan (I use a standard bread pan; it’s what I have!) with a bit more butter & gently place batter inside. It’s a very dense, heavy batter than doesn’t rise all that much, so be sure to not squish it firmly into the pan.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes or until a knife comes out clean!
  6. Serve warm smothered in butter, or after it’s cooled, with peanut butter & jelly. Enjoy!
