Superfood Bread

Packed full of healthy ingredients, this bread is a far cry from the processed breads you might be trying to avoid. You can make up a few batches, slice them and freeze them for whenever you need to pull a few pieces out for a meal. Think avocado toast, hummus dipping, dunked into soup or eaten with a salad.

Ingredients:

  • 200g (1 mug) almonds
  • 260g (1.5 mugs) pumpkin seeds
  • 200g (1/2 mug) brown rice flour
  • 85g (1/2 mug) sunflower seeds
  • 3 tablespoons psyllium husk powder
  • 3 tablespoons dried mixed herbs
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • Salt and pepper

Method:

  1. Place the almonds and 1 mug of the pumpkin seeds in a food processor for a couple of minutes until you have a smooth flour.
  2. Place this flour into a large mixing bowl and stir in the remaining pumpkin seeds.
  3. Add in the brown rice flour, sunflower seeds, psyllium husks, dried herbs, chia seeds, salt and pepper.
  4. Add 600ml (2 mugs) cold water and stir the whole mixture together.
  5. Leave the bowl to one side for about an hour. By this time, all the water should have been absorbed and the mixture totally stuck together.
  6. Preheat the oven to 200C (fan 180C). Place the dough into a loaf tin (5-7cm tall – no more).
  7. Bake for about 45 minutes until the top becomes a golden brown and a knife comes out clean.
