Almond and Flaxseed Flour Bread [Dairy, Gluten, Grains, Sugar free]


I decided on trying out a gluten free bread using combination of almond flour  and flax seed flour, a recipe which I sourced from Grainfree Living.   This was to sate a huge processed breads and rolls craving that has been doing regular rounds in the recent few weeks which I have managed to keep at bay but thinking about it constantly made me want to try a slightly different loaf than the ones’ I have attempted recently.  I also realised when preparing the ingredients for this bread, all my breads have been a once baked attempt for myself, so it’s a pretty good record in avoiding breads I think!

This bread is slightly different in the ingredients as I have omitted the apple cider vinegar and used water instead, just a small amount to round off the flour, eggs and oil mixture to bring it to a thick batter consistency.  The inclusion of salt and pepper makes this an interesting-tasting loaf and while I was putting the ingredients together I realised that nuts and seeds added to the mixture will create a seed loaf, which I have yet to try out.

I used sesame and sunflower seeds to complete this loaf just before baking.  This loaf produces a “thick” tasting bread – which will store for up to a week in the refrigerator.  The texture lends itself to being toasted, which will appeal to those wanting a low carb breakfast bread alternative every once in a while.

Ingredients

1 1/3 cups flax flour
2/3 cup almond flour
1.5 tsp cream of tarter
1 tsp  bicarbonate of soda
4 eggs
3 tbsp olive oil – you may also used flavoured extra virgin olive oil for a different tasting loaf
salt and pepper to taste
A tiny bit of water  (1/4 cup is sufficient) to achieve the required consistency.
Optional  – nuts and seeds as desired, in small quantities

Here’s How

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  • Place all the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well to combine- I used a food processor.
  • Add all the wet ingredients and mix into a smooth batter
 
  • Pour into a greased loaf tin, greased with coconut oil or line the baking tin with baking paper
  • Top with sesame seeds or seeds of choice.
  • Bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 40 mins or until a skewer comes out clean. Enjoy!
